Breslin Bell


Breslin Bell is an interdisciplinary visual artist working primarily in print, sculpture and installation informed by feminisms and feminized rights. Bell is also an educator and museum professional. She has exhibited widely since 2016 in a number of group exhibitions in London, Edinburgh, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maine and Japan. Highlights include Body Autonomy with Latela Curatorial, Tomorrow 2021 with White Cube London and Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair 2021. Her work has been featured in Arts Thread’s Global Design Graduate Show 2021 Judges Favorites, Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair Panelist Picks, RISD news outlets and other publications. 

Her practice considers body autonomy, public health and gender-based aggression and violence—traversing the nonlinear relationship/kinship between transfeminism and reproductive choice, i.e., concerns around estrogen-related pills and surgeries. Her work often explores environmental issues, women’s rights and the intersections between them. She’s interested in the complexities of an “eco-feminism” and “land/body art” lens on feminized making.

Bell is a recipient of the American Cities Internship Program Award with the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts, Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop; MASS MoCA Artist-in-Residence; Center for Contemporary Printmaking Artist-in-Residence; and Alice C. Cole ’42 Studio Project Grant. Bell earned her MFA from RISD and her BA from Wellesley College.
