I Like Your Work: Conversations with Artists, Curators & Collectors

Feb 16, 2019

I am excited to talk to the NYC based artist Melissa Meyer. In this episode, we talk about painting in the 1960's, her work with Miriam Schapiro on the essay that coined the term "femmage" and her current studio work. Melissa received undergraduate and graduate degrees from New York University. Her development has been surveyed in traveling exhibitions originating at the New York Studio School and Swarthmore College. She has completed public commissions in New York, Tokyo, Shanghai, and Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. Her work is in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Brooklyn Museum, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Jewish Museum, and the McNay Art Museum. Meyer received the Rome Prize from the American Academy in Rome, and grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Pollock-Krasner Foundation.
Thank you to Producer Vinson Valega for sponsoring this episode:
