Melissa Huang: Another Day Another Girl
January 9 – March 21, 2021
The Marietta Cobb Museum of Art presents a solo exhibition featuring Atlanta artist and Georgia State University MFA candidate, Melissa Huang (born 1992). Her dreamlike oil paintings, prints, sculptures, and video art explore digitally constructed bodies and identities. In her often self-referential artwork, Huang explores the multiplicity of identity. How one is perceived by others and the ways one presents oneself can change from person to person, situation to situation. Another Day Another Girl explores themes like personalities versus personas and technology and social media’s effects (both positive and negative) on the search for and establishment of identity.
