Carey Young (born 1970) is a visual artist whose work is inspired by multiple disciplines, including economics, law, politics, science and communication. These fields's tools act as material for her installations, text works and photographs, and for videos in which absurd relationships develop between the performer and the rhetoric of political, commercial and legal discourse. Young's work often develops from the professional cultures she explores. In her installations, she often dons attire appropriate to the business and legal worlds, and enacts scenarios examining and questioning each institution's power to shape society. Young also teaches internationally at art colleges such as the Slade School of Fine Art in London where she is also an Associate Professor in Fine Art.
