Melissa Joseph

2023 Artist In Residence

Melissa Joseph works with fiber, ceramics, and other materials to consider memory, family histories, and the politics of how we occupy spaces. She intentionally alludes to the labors of women as well as experiences as a second-generation American and the unique juxtapositions of diasporic life.  Her work has been shown at the Delaware Contemporary, Utah MOCA, Brattleboro Museum, Jeffrey Deitch Projects, and MOCA Arlington, and featured in Hyperallergic, New American Paintings, Le Monde, CNN, and Architectural Digest.  She has participated in residencies including Dieu Donné Workspace Residency, Fountainhead, and BRIC Video Artist Residency, and the Archie Bray Foundation for Ceramic Arts.  She is a regular contributor to BOMB Magazine and lives in New York City.
