Monica Morris is a multidisciplinary artist who currently lives, works, and studies in Chicago, IL. Her practice explores the intersections of femininity, labor, and consumer culture through the creation of sculptural objects, performance, and participatory works. By placing herself in physically-demanding, impossible scenarios, Morris utilizes humor and honesty to connect with viewers around shared experiences of loneliness and failure.
Before relocating to Chicago, Morris received her BFA in Sculpture (2015) from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA. She is currently a Master of Arts candidate (2020) in the Art Therapy and Counseling Program at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Morris is a recipient of the School’s New Artist Society scholarship.
