Anthony Bennett
Name: Anthony Bennett

A multidisciplinary artist whose work, often collaborative, is inspired by difficult contemporary and future sociological concerns surrounding issues such as food security and migration.


In recent years, after taking a detour with my sculptural work whilst raising a family, I am re-emerging as a multidisciplinary artist, and am consistently showing work. My work is radical, politically engaged, and often polemical. My work is inspired by difficult contemporary and future sociological concerns surrounding issues such as food security and migration.

I often work collaboratively, and am proactive implementing initiatives linking artists with academic partners (I co-conceived ‘The Festival of the Mind’, The University of Sheffield: 2012 to date). Recent shows include ‘The Future of Food’ a SciArt Center exhibition at Usagi Gallery, Brooklyn, NYC, and Modern Panic IX, Guerrilla Zoo, London.

I am Honorary Research Fellow for ‘Environmental Advocacy at the Intersection of Science and Contemporary Art’ at the Institute for Sustainable Food, at the University of Sheffield.

Anthony is one of our members featuring their work as part of the ClimateCultures Quarantine Connection series. We shared his image, Ace of Wands, on Day 11 of the 40-day series.
