M.M. Dupay modifies found materials, explores in-between-ness, and questions processes of “othering”. Her artwork asks questions. How do our relationships to past and present contexts and places shift how we are defined? How do we make sense of shifting boundaries and intersections when we are “all the other”? How do stories, objects, and images allow us to re-create ourselves in response to the power of others?
Dupay continues to ask questions in her making as well as with her students. She currently teaches first-year studios and interdisciplinary arts experiences at Bowling Green State University.
She has received an Ohio Individual Artist Fellowship Award.
