Andrew Cornell Robinson (b. 1968, Camden, NJ) is an interdisciplinary artist working in sculpture, ceramics, painting, printmaking, performance and collaborative craft. He spends some of his time curating, teaching and writing about art, craft and culture. His work has been presented in New York City at Anna Kustera; Christopher Stout Gallery; Paul Sharpe Projects, Eyelevel BQE; in Chicago at the American Center for Design; in Connecticut at the Bruce Museum for the Ceramics Circle; in London with the United Kingdom Crafts Council, et al. He has received an Edward Albee Foundation fellowship; an educational grant for an art, design and performance collaborative workshop at The New School; and a research grant from Parsons for his work exploring the nature of craft thinking across disciplines. He has worked as an artist and educator in Port au Prince, Haiti and in southern India.

His idiosyncratic creations are visually rich, poetic, at times political and perplexing meditations on memory, mortality and the beauty found within the ordinary. Since the 1990s, he has used ceramic and interdisciplinary sculpture to create handcrafted objects in order to push familiar subject matter off-kilter. Creating a peculiar and queer collection of works that operate collectively as palimpsest showing the traces of a life lived.

Robinson studied at the Maryland Institute College of Art and the Glasgow School of Art, Scotland. He received an MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. He teaches at Parsons School of Design in New York City.
