Additional Information: Anna Stump is an artist and arts educator living in San Diego. She teaches studio and art history courses at San Diego City College, Grossmont College and the NewSchool. Stump’s blog of three years, Kloe Among the Turks, examines the art scene in Southern California and Turkey, as well as issues of arts education. In 2009 she curated an exhibition of 130 artists from Southern California and Turkey, presented in San Diego, Los Angeles, Istanbul and Ankara. She is the founder of the San Diego Feminist Image Group and a member of Mid-Air Trio, an improvisational group that combines painting, dance and soundscapes in live performances.

She was recently profiled in the Huffington Post by Mat Gleason for her new work, “Sexy Jesus.” She says, “My work as a painter, performance artist, and curator is intimately connected. Interest in body politics, feminism, and physicality is grounded in community building and education, which I challenge personally by cultural risk-taking. My job is to both please and provoke.”
