    Michelle L. Herman is a multidisciplinary artist who creates sculpture, video, and installations to initiate conversations about agency within invisible systems of power. Drawing from theoretical and philosophical research, feminist and disability politics, comedy, and conceptualism, Herman explores themes such as the performativity of everyday life in technologically mediated society, value production, and how agency navigates larger systems of power.

    Herman has exhibited internationally in solo and group exhibitions at Gallerie La Box (Bourges, France, 2022); HFK University of the Arts (Bremen, Germany, 2022); The Corcoran Museum of Art (Washington, DC, 2010); The Smithsonian Institution (Washington, DC, 2019, 2017, 2010, 2009); The Kennedy Center (Washington, DC, 2008), The Washington Project for the Arts (Washington, DC, 2015); Arlington Art Center (Arlington, VA, 2017); Hillyer Art Space (Washington, DC, 2016); and Visarts (Rockville, MD, 2021, 2018).

    Herman’s work has been written about and featured in Hyperallergic, New American Paintings, The Washington Post, NPR, and East City Arts. Herman holds both an MFA and BFA from The Maryland Institute College of Art (MFA 2020; BFA 2008).
