Mary Grace (MG) is an artist and scholar living with cystic fibrosis, a chronic illness that informs her daily art and writing practice. In an effort to combine art theory and art practice, Mary Grace analyzes contemporary performance artists through performances of her own. In an attempt to break down binaries, she makes the invisibility of chronic illness visible and advocates the importance of bringing the (dis)abled community to the forefront of art historical and theoretical conversations. In addition to performance, she also works in sculpture, photography, installation, digital video, and graphic design. She is currently an artist in residence at The Temple Contemporary Artist Haven in Denver.
