Marshall’s mesmerising scenarios of maternal fear and dread strike at the heart of Western culture’s commodification of childhood

- Metropolitan Museum of Art

  • ARTYQUE is proud to work with the fascinating Maria Marshall, who explores the fine line between the autobiographical and the imaginary through her interdisciplinary body of work. Maria gained recognition in the USA with her works ‘When I Grow Up I Want to be a Cooker’ from 1998 and ‘President Bill Clinton, Memphis November 13, 1993’ from 2000, which were instrumental in establishing her voice as a leader in her field.

    Her works, often political and socially engaged, explore recurring themes such as masculinity, motherhood, militarism and fear, and their enculturation and manifestation in the psyche. Marshall has had solo exhibitions at the California College of the Arts in Oakland, Palais de Tokyo in Paris and Centre pour l’Image Contemporaine in Geneva among other venues and her works are present in prestigious collections such as the Guggenheim Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York; the Musée National d'Art Moderne Georges Pompidou as well as the Louis Vuitton and the Pinault Collections in Paris and the Zablodovitch collection in London.
