Mae Howard, 2024 Virtual

Mae Howard is a visual artist and ritualist whose interdisciplinary approach extends across research-based, participatory, and collaborative projects ranging from lens-based media, sculpture, installation, and performance. Calling upon lineages of disabled/trans carework, Mae is interested in the embodied, fleshly, and material enmeshment of BDSM, the medical industrial complex, biopolitics, and disability. Their practice explores the residue of discard, debilitation, and excess. Their work has been exhibited in New York, Berlin, Mexico City, and Philadelphia. They are currently a 2023-2024 fellow at the Whitney Independent Study Program & teach critical disability studies at the University of Pennsylvania.
