About

Employing a variety of media including photography, painting, and sculpture, Maya Grace Misra creates art that addresses the use of symbols in creating identities, whether personal or public. Influenced by the institutional critique of artists such as Adrian Piper and Andrea Fraser, as well as written works by Trinh T. Minh-ha and Howard Zinn, Misra challenges our perception of the symbols that are provided for us in conjunction with a socially accepted historical narrative. Born in Hayward, CA in 1991, Misra earned her BFA in Studio Art from New York University in 2014. She continues to live and work in New York City.
