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 Journal, The Dallas Morning News, Inview Magazine, 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 Gilding the Pussy in 2016, (a)wake in 2011 (both group show for Women’s History Month), and LIMIT(less) at UICA, Grand Rapids, MI.

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