Eli Brown is an interdisciplinary artist whose work in queer ecologies spans sculpture, writing, drawing, social practice, and public art. His practice revolves around understanding trans-ness as a lineage, and as an evolutionary phenomenon that is not always human.Their work has been exhibited at the deCordova Museum & Sculpture Park Biennial, Flux Factory, and Creative Time X. Eli’s exhibitions and public projects have been reviewed in Sculpture Magazine, CULTURED, WGBH’s Open Studio, and Chronicle 5 News. Their writing and work have been published in NiCHE: Network in Canadian History and Environment, Antennae: The Journal of Nature in Visual Culture, the upcoming Artists and The Practice of Agriculture (Routledge), and the long-running, queer, sex-ed comic, Not Your Mother’s Meatloaf.
