Michelle Murphy is an artist and lecturer currently based in Chicago. Murphy earned a BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art, and MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago as a New Artists Society Fellow in 2017.
In series of work, Origins & Exploration, Murphy re-imagines science narratives like: Big Bang, birth, space exploration, and mitosis. Murphy’s work is informed by social studies, research, and experiences employed as a Photographer for NASA (2004-2015). Through “gravity-bound” performances, video, installation, and photography of consumer objects (ex. chicken eggs, make-up, bath water, and party supplies)…Murphy queers the exclusive, subjective, and binary nature of science didactics.
Murphy’s interdisciplinary work has been exhibited in NYC, Paris, Switzerland, Guatemala City, Chicago, San Francisco. Murphy co-curates international publication, MAKE8ELIEVE with Swiss artist and designer Cetusss.
