Post-Grad Artist Talk: Michaela Japec

March 14 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

As her three-month post-grad residency comes to a close, Michaela Japec talks with moderator Leslie Mounaime, Curator of Exhibitions at the Torpedo Factory Art Center, about her experiences during her time at the Torpedo Factory. Hear her speak about how her residency inspired her work and process, what she’s done during her time, and what she will be doing next.

Join us in the main hall of the Art Center for her talk and then a mingle in the Post-Grad studio #319 after the talk is over.

About Michaela

Michaela Japec is from Alexandria, Virginia. She recently completed her bachelor’s of fine arts in 2018 from George Mason University. Through her art, she works through conflicting thoughts she has about her sexuality, body insecurities, and feelings of oppression. During her residency, she will explore less comfortable themes with exaggerated and even grotesque work.

Though Michaela was born in Alexandria, she grew up in Forssjö, Sweden, and lived there until 2008. She has been active in the Alexandria visual arts community for many years, exhibiting work at The Art League Gallery and Delray Artisan Gallery, as well as other locations in Northern Virginia including Richard J. Ernst Community Cultural Center in Annandale and Epicure Café in Fairfax.
