MFA, Imaging Arts, Rochester Institute of Technology
Megan Metté has been teaching studio art courses at the University of Rochester since 2013, and in 2018 her role expanded to cover a variety of tasks for the Art and Art History Department. As the Art New York program manager, she helps UR students navigate living, working, and creating in New York City. Meanwhile, as the River Campus gallery manager, she curates exhibitions in many spaces around campus, including Frontispace and Sage Art Center.
In her artistic practice, Megan uses lens-based imagery to question our expectations of ideal environments and the things that we do to feel in control. As an artist and a curator, Megan is often drawn to interdisciplinary collaborations, bringing together musicians, dancers, and visual artists across diverse media. Since 2018, she has served as the inaugural curatorial fellow at CEPA Gallery’s Big Orbit Project Space in Buffalo.
