biography

Maureen Nollette is an interdisciplinary artist whose practice encompasses installation, drawing, and sculpture. Nollette pairs the measured regularity of the grid with handmade work that is implicitly labor-intensive allowing for imperfection. Her work challenges the stereotypes of gendered approaches to labor, or “women’s work.” This critique is instrumental in shaping her work.

Nollette’s work is part of the following collections: Detroit Institute of the Arts (Detroit, MI); Yves St. Laurent (New York, NY); MGM Mirage Hotel (Las Vegas, NV); j. jill Group (Tilton, NH); along with private collections.

Her work has been reviewed in the following publications: ArtDaily Newsletter, The Poughkeepsie JournalThe Dallas Morning News among others. Nollette has given lectures and workshops at School of Visual Arts in NY, Kendall College of Art & Design in MI, and Grand Rapids Art Museum in MI to name a few. Nollette’s curatorial projects include code ORANGEGilding the Pussy, (a)wake, and LIMIT(less).

Nollette received her MFA from The City University of New York in Queens, NY and currently resides in Grand Rapids, MI.
