The Department of Art is excited to welcome MJ Neuberger as a Visiting Assistant Professor supporting the Photography + Moving Image Area this academic year. MJ is a multidisciplinary artist, educator and curator whose work offers opportunities to explore and embrace aspects of self and internal and external Others disowned through colonization and cultural hegemony. With degrees from Duke, Columbia, and UMBC, MJ has a very active creative practice that spans writing, video, sculpture, photography, performance, and curation. Neuberger established the Great Wide Open art/performance series which presented collective work in Baltimore, MD, Cambridge, MD, and New York City, and co-founded Meeting Ground, a project that also works collaboratively to pursue a variety of healing actions. Her collaborations are many, and MJ has received a variety of competitive artist residencies and grants, including a Creative Alliance Residency and a Wherewithal Research Grant funded by the Andy Warhol Foundation. She is coming to us most recently from teaching positions at UMBC, Towson University, and George Mason University. Here is a lovely and very informative article highlighting one of her more recent projects: The Protection of Lowly Gods.
