Using sculpture and printmaking, Morgan Melenka reproduces, modifies and misuses the familiar forms and materials of physical structures to engage with the world of architec-ture. Join us for a talk with Melenka as she discusses her artistic practice, and her upcoming exhibition in the Project Space.
Morgan Melenka is a visual artist based in Mohkinstsis (Calgary). She engages with sculpture and printmaking as she misuses architectural forms and materials to engage with history and place. She holds an MFA from NSCAD University, Halifax (2019).
