Melissa Yes's work is a strategy that uses appropriation, play, and social engagement to (attempt to) understand mainstream American myths and attitudes. Ambitious multimedia projects form the gravitational center of her practice, which also sustains an orbit of smaller experiments in video, painting, and sculpture. She has an affection for glitch and for un-precious materials, which offer both levity and critique of her subjects (and herself).

This exhibit will be available for viewing in the Poole Gallery inside the Center for the Arts, University of Montevallo.

Melissa Yes's work is a strategy that uses appropriation, play, and social engagement to (attempt to) understand mainstream American myths and attitudes. Ambitious multimedia projects form the gravitational center of her practice, which also sustains an orbit of smaller experiments in video, painting, and sculpture. She has an affection for glitch and for un-precious materials, which offer both levity and critique of her subjects (and herself).
