“Alexia Mellor is an interdisciplinary artist using humor and performative strategies to investigate issues of security, displacement and identity in an increasingly corporatized world. A graduate of SUNY Geneseo and a recent MFA graduate from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston/Tufts University, Mellor transposes familiar gestures and objects that culturally define us into unfamiliar contexts to deconstruct social norms, consumer culture and notions of place.
She was recently featured in the Boston Globe as one of the six graduate students to watch and is co-founder of the WRMC Collaborative and ProjectSoya. Her work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally, and has most recently been included in the Woman as Photographer: Picturing Life as a Woman, Mpls Photo Center, Minneapolis, MN, Mash-ups, Lake Forest College, Illinois, New England Photography Biennial at the Danforth Museum of Art, and at the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art. Mellor organized and chaired MIND THE GAP, a multi-media and multi-platform art initiative with a panel at ISEA2011 Istanbul at Sabanci University.”
