Alexia Mellor

Alexia Mellor is an interdisciplinary artist using humor and performative strategies to investigate issues of security, displacement and identity in an increasingly globalized world. A recent MFA graduate from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston/Tufts University, Mellor employs humor and sarcasm to question existing notions of identity formation. By recontextualizing traditional gestures and objects that culturally define us, Mellor deconstructs social norms, consumer culture and notions of place. She was recently featured in the Boston Globe as one of the six graduate students to watch. Her work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally, and has most recently been included in the New England Photography Biennial at the Danforth Museum of Art and at AXIOM Gallery for New and Experimental Media. Mellor is also co-founder of the WRMC Collaborative along with artist, Andrew Y. Ames.
