MPA (b. 1980) is a feminist and exhibitionist following a living art practice. Her solo and collaborative works focus on performance often in combination with photography, film, text and sculpture. Enriched with ritual, these acts service a political exercise of the body stimulating questions for participation, resistance and the intimacy between both. Her work has been presented in New York by the Whitney Museum of American Art, Art in General, The Kitchen, Larissa Goldston Gallery, Higher Pictures, and Movement Research; in Chicago at the Museum of Contemporary Art and Pilot TV; in London at Yinka Shonibare’s Guest Projects, Zendai MoMA in Shanghai, and the Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Oaxaca in Mexico. MPA lives in Brooklyn, NY.
