About Miranda Maher
I am a conceptually-based visual artist. I make artist books, installations, and series of objects and works on paper.
I moved from Detroit to Brooklyn shortly after receiving my MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 1990. Before that I lived in Providence while working on my BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design. And before that I lived in Kansas, Indiana, New York, Florida, North Carolina, back to Kansas, Virginia, Washington DC, Heidelberg, Munich, California and back to Washington DC. Nomad? Nomad.
Over the last 15 years, I have exhibited in university, non-profit and commercial gallery spaces here in New York and throughout the US. Along with my exhibition work, I have editioned more than 10 artist’s books and was the Art Editor for the poetry journal Long News in the Short Century. Some venues that have shown my work: Wave Hill (Bronx), The Urban Institute of Contemporary Art, White Columns, The Drawing Center, Nicole Klagsbrun Gallery and Pierogi’s Flat Files. I have also shown work at Kunstbunker (Nuremberg), Spaces (Cleveland), CEPA (Buffalo), Artetica (Rome), Yatoo (S. Korea), Staub (g*fzk!)(Zurich), the Milwaukee Art Museum, the Bronx Museum of Art and the Brooklyn Museum of Art.
My work is represented in the Robert Schiffler Collection, as well as many university and museum collections including the Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art (Special Collections), Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago and the Brooklyn Museum.
