Mara Eagle is an American artist living and working in Montréal since 2012. Drawing from the history of science and feminist studies, her work explores the historical contingency of the concept of nature, and envisions the possibility of growth and regeneration following the dissolution of the categories of nature, technology and the human. In June of 2020 her work was exhibited at the Montréal Museum of Contemporary Art. Other recent exhibitions include group shows at Critical Distance, the University of Kentucky Art Museum, Centre Clark, Printemps Numérique, Studio XX, Leonard & Bina Ellen Gallery, and Saw Video Media Centre. Her research has been generously supported by the Berggruen Institute, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Société et culture, and the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation. Mara Eagle is represented by Gallery Pangée.
