About

Erin Mitchell (b. 1989, California, USA; she/her) is a multidisciplinary artist based in Berlin, Germany. Her work focuses on the ways nature and wellness ideologies are manipulated in the context of ‘tech-topian’ neo-corporate aesthetics.

Her work has been exhibited internationally in solo and group exhibitions including Kreuzberg Pavillon, Berlin (2021), Anonymous Gallery, New York (2021); Virginia Bianchi Gallery, Bologna (2021); Centre Del Carme, Valencia (2019); Harlesden High Street with isthisit?, London (2019); Galerie Manqué, New York (2019); Off Site Project, London (2019); Exgirlfriend Gallery, Berlin (2018); and Kunstpunkt Galerie für Aktuelle Kunst (2017).

She curated the virtual speaking conference ▇xTheWrong as part of The Wrong Biennale (2019). Her work is held in the collection of Lawrence B. Benenson, member of the MoMA Board of Trustees.
