MJ Neuberger 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.
Neuberger has foregrounded work by underrepresented artists, scholars and activists who advance inclusion and shared aspects of the ground we hold common. As co-founder of Meeting Ground projects, she was selected as part of an inaugural 2020-2021 cohort awarded generous grants for public facing works, administered by the Washington Project for the Arts and funded through the Andy Warhol Foundation.
She has presented projects internationally through the Urban Soils Institute and the Media Architecture Biennial; at SWALE House, Art Resources Transfer, the Nuyorican Poets Café and A Gathering of the Tribes in New York City as well as at the Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture and the Tephra Institute for Contemporary Art. Her most recent solo exhibition exploring Filipino American identity and colonial history earned extensive consideration and acclaim from independent media.
As an educator she has prioritized mentoring students from underrepresented populations, collaborating with University of Maryland Jazz Studies professor Fred Foss on an arts curriculum for first-time college goers and working with community organizers to launch an after school woodworking program in which Baltimore youth created amenities for their underserved neighborhoods. She has taught art at George Mason University, the University of North Carolina, and Anne Arundel Community College as well as foundations and beginning and advanced photography at Towson University and the University of Maryland Baltimore County.
