Margaret Meehan is an artist living and working in Richmond, VA. Her work is a research-based, multidisciplinary exploration that pulls from film, music, popular culture, folklore, and traditional crafts. She considers the origins of outcasts through their representation – in particular, the tendency for women and societal “others” to be seen as monsters. Meehan’s research includes teratology and medicine, ornithology, the esthetics of cuteness, materiality in high and low culture as well as modes of feminist protest. This all stems from her curiosity about the lines that separate what is protected from what is feared and how gendering plays into these expectations.
Her work has been shown at ArtPace San Antonio, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, The Dallas Museum of Art, Flowers Gallery in London, Conduit Gallery in Dallas, and Ulterior Gallery in New York. Awards and residencies include Greenwich House Pottery, the Nasher Sculpture Center Microgrant, Artpace International Residency, The Lighthouse Works Residency, Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts Residency, and the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Fellowship. Meehan’s work has been featured in the Guardian, Sculpture Magazine, New American Paintings, and Artforum, among others. This Fall she will be a studio resident at the Visual Arts Center of Richmond.
