Margaret Meehan is interested in how how the body has been perceived throughout history. Born in the 1970s and educated in the 1990s during the emergence of third-wave feminism and the Riot Grrrl movement, she is drawn to cycles of representation. Meehan’s work undertakes a research-based, multidisciplinary exploration of difference, acceptance, and aggression. While much of the work pulls from film, music, and popular culture, it also references folklore and traditional crafts.
Her work has been shown at ArtPace San Antonio, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, The Dallas Museum of Art, as well as Soil Art Gallery in Seattle, Flowers Gallery in London, David Shelton Gallery in Houston, Conduit Gallery in Dallas, Texas, and Ulterior Gallery in New York, NY. Awards and residencies include the Nasher Sculpture Center Microgrant (2015), Artpace, San Antonio, TX (2014), The Lighthouse Works Fellowship, Fishers Island, NY (2013), Bemis Center, Omaha, NE (2009), the Dozier Travel Grant, Dallas Museum of Art, TX (2008).
