Preston Drum
BFA, Memphis College of Art
MFA, Minneapolis College of Art and Design

Preston Drum was born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina. Though his past work focused on mixed-media painting, his current work centers on the development of interactive installations and moving images that explore notions of memory and performance through non-linear storytelling.

Drum’s installations and performances are often site-specific and collaborative in nature, framing the audience as a participant in the art. His work has been exhibited throughout the Midwest and Southern United States at venues such as Jonathan Ferrara Gallery, the Minneapolis Institute of Art, and the Walker Art Center. He currently works as an educator and studio artist in Minneapolis.
