Steven L Bridges


Steven Bridges is the Assistant Curator at the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University, where his first major project was Beyond Streaming: A Sound Mural for Flint, a complex project with artist Jan Tichy that addressed the Flint water crisis, and which involved workshop with high school students in both Flint and Lansing and which culminated in a major, commissioned installation.

Bridges was previously a Curatorial Assistant at the MCA Chicago, where he worked with artist Doris Salcedo on her retrospective exhibition organized by the MCA. He was also a co-curator of Rapid Pulse, an international performance art festival in Chicago, and of the annual MFA Exhibition at SAIC. Earlier in his career, Bridges served as Editor of the exhibition journal series Exchange Radical Moments!, which accompanied the live arts festival of the same name that took place in eleven countries across Europe simultaneously in 2011. In 2008, he was part of the curatorial team for the exhibition Intrude: Art & Life 366, which presented a different artistic project each day in the public spaces of Shanghai for an entire year.

Steven Bridges received a dual Masters degree in Arts Administration & Policy and Art History, Theory and Criticism in 2009. His thesis title was “Making the invisible visible: socially engaged, collaborative public art in the city.”
