Melis Agabigum

Melis Agabigum is an educator and studio artist from Michigan. She received her MFA from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and has taught as an adjunct in art metals at Boise State University, the University of Michigan, and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Provoked by an interest in material fiction, her work explores the physical and emotional weights that affect individuals in how they perceive their connection to others, their bodies, and space. Agabigum’s work has been shown at the national and international level in shows at (AV17) Gallery, in Lithuania; Woman Made Gallery, in Chicago, IL; the Walker Art Museum; and the Charles H. Wright Museum.
