Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde


ANTHONY HUDSON is a member of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde and is a multidisciplinary artist, writer, performer, and filmmaker. Anthony is known as Portland, Oregon’s premier drag clown CARLA ROSSI, an immortal trickster whose attempts at realness almost always result in fantastic failure. Together they have been featured at the Portland and Seattle Art Museums, the Vancouver Queer Film Festival, the 2019 Portland Biennial, the Risk/Reward Festival, PICA's TBA Festival, Melbourne’s Yirramboi Festival, and more. Anthony also regularly hosts and programs QUEER HORROR – the only LGBTQ+ horror film screening series in the United States – at the historic Hollywood Theatre.

Anthony was named a 2018 National Artist Fellow from the Native Arts and Cultures Foundation, a 2018 Western Arts Alliance Native Launchpad Artist, and a 2019 Oregon Arts Commission Fellow, and has received project support and fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, National Performance Network, USArtists International, the Oregon Community Foundation, the Regional Arts and Culture Council, the Portland Art Museum & NW Film Center, Portland Institute for Contemporary Art, Ucross Foundation, Caldera Arts Center, and more.

Anthony also co-hosts the weekly queer feminist horror podcast GAYLORDS OF DARKNESS with writer Stacie Ponder. Anthony’s first professionally produced theatrical play, LOOKING FOR TIGER LILY, adapted from Anthony’s solo show of the same name, will make its world premiere at Artists Repertory Theatre.
