Freeman Artist Residents 2022 - 2023
Caro Campos (she/her) is an artist and writer based in Charlottesville, Virginia. She grew up in Brazil, California, Wisconsin, and Virginia, and most recently graduated from the University of Virginia with a degree in Political & Social Thought and a minor in Urban & Environmental Planning. Her creative practice explores insurgent memory, critical geography, and migration. She mobilizes collage as a method in her organizing and community-building practices to map, dream, and visualize new modes of life, care, and personhood outside and in refusal of systems of domination. Campos desires to reconsider and resist mere recognition as an end within art. How might we build new worlds when no one can see them? When no one has seen them before? She is invested in thinking about the role that method, language, art, and text play in these inquiries.
Dorothy Li is an interdisciplinary artist who engages in artistic practice regarding identity, loss, and connection. Using animation, drawing, painting, and sculpture, Li explores her cross-cultural identity by investigating how art can be a bridge between her American and Chinese cultural heritage.

Li graduated from the University of Virginia with a bachelors in Studio art and Psychology in the Spring of 2022.
