Nyeema Morgan is a Chicago based interdisciplinary artist whose works are inspired by philosophical conflicts presented in our everyday encounters with images, objects, and information. Referencing familiar artifacts like recipes, book pages, fables, and canonical artworks, Morgan reflects on personal and cultural economies of knowledge. Her conceptually layered works, ranging from large-scale drawings to sculptural installation and print based media, raise questions about how we articulate and construct meaning within a complex system of socio-political relations.
Morgan earned her BFA from the Cooper Union School of Art and her MFA from California College of the Arts. Solo and two person exhibitions include: Marlborough Contemporary, New York City, NY; Grant Wahlquist Gallery, Portland, ME; The Bindery Projects, St. Paul, MN; and Art in General, New York City, NY. Group exhibitions include: The Drawing Center, New York City, NY; The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York City, NY; CSS Bard Gallery, Annandale-on-Hudson, NY; Galerie Jean Roche Dard, Paris, France; and the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, Brunswick, ME. Her awards and residencies include: Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Workspace Program, Shandanken Projects at Storm King Art Center, a Joan Mitchell Painters and Sculptors grant, and an Art Matters Foundation grant. Her works have been reviewed and featured in The New York Times, Time Out NY, The Wall Street Journal, and Art Forum.
