Misha Wyllie is a multimedia artist and writer based in Philadelphia. In both her research and art practice she explores the histories of craft, technology, public art, and countercultural movements in the arts. Her art practice is a sculptural one, and found objects, ceramics, photography, and video are her main media. Through defamiliarizing the everyday, her work offers a space for rethinking how we define skill, legibility, surface, the imagined, and the real, often in the embrace of humor and absurdity.
Prof. Wyllie has exhibited locally at Pilot Projects, Little Berlin, Space 1026, and the Woodmere Art Museum, as well as nationally at research institutions including The New School for Social Research, Moore College of Art and Design, and Ringling College of Art and Design. In 2015 she was the Esteemed Alumni Mentorship Program Artist at Temple Contemporary at the Tyler School of Art and Architecture, and an artist-in-residence at Mildred’s Lane.
