About Michelle L. Herman

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 the performativity of everyday life in technologically mediated society, the way that value is produced through an interchange of desire and objectification, and how agency is unwittingly surrendered to technology and larger systems of power.Herman has shown nationally in both group and solo exhibitions at locations such as the Hillyer Art Space, Arlington Art Center, Visarts, the Washington Project for the Arts, the Corcoran, The Smithsonian Institution, and The Kennedy Center. Herman’s work has been written about and featured in Hyperallergic, New American Paintings, The Washington Post, NPR, and East City Arts. Herman is an alumna of the Maryland Institute College of Art (MFA, 2020) and the Sparkplug artist collective sponsored by the DC Arts Center.
