Andrea Carlson (Ojibwe) is a visual artist originally from Minnesota currently living in Chicago, Illinois. Through painting and drawing, Carlson cites entangled cultural narratives and institutional authority relating to objects based on the merit of possession and display.

Site-specific, public installations of Carlson's work have focused on the importance of the land to Indigenous communities.
