Laura Marsh is a textile artist with a social practice. Her spheres, flags, and installations contain social mottos and humanitarian texts. From two generations of women who sew, Marsh practices a do-it-yourself approach that is accessible and hands-on. Her desire to define spaces that are place makers for others express the need for more fluid conversations about feminism, gender, and class issues. Marsh regards her practice as multilayered and transformative and it is often participatory. She supports the activation of uncommon sites. Marsh received her MFA from Yale University School of Art and a BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art. Marsh has exhibited nationally at venues including Dimensions Variable, Miami, The Whitney Museum of American Art, Printed Matter, Field Projects, Newman Popiashvili Gallery, and Tilton Gallery in NY. She is a current artist in residence at Mana Contemporary and the Director of Programming at Oolite Arts.
