Micol Hebron is a Los Angeles based artist and is an Assistant Professor in the Art Department at Chapman University in Orange, CA. She utilizes performance, instillation, photography and video in her work to explore the artist's relationship to art-making, art history and modernism in particular. Her current projects are focused on re-examining essentialist feminism in the context of the contemporary art world to open new dialogues in contemporary art.
"I am interested in the social, cultural, and historical constructions of identity, particularly within the role and image of the female body in the wake of modernism and second wave feminism. I use art history, social games, folklore, mythology, everyday actions, memes, and humor to destabilize expectations and stereotypes of gender."
