Virginia Lee-Montgomery was born in 1986 in Houston, Texas. Through various mediums including video, performance, sound, and sculpture, she reveals the effects of the emotive, ecologic and economic uncanny. Her contemporary movements and their documentation empathetically map and physically channel the metaphysics of dematerialized capital.
Lee-Montgomery received her MFA from Yale University School of Art in 2016 and her BFA from The University of Texas at Austin in 2008. Between her BFA and MFA she worked performatively in corporate creative consulting illustrating agendas that proselytize creative commodity and innovation standards, both onshore and offshore. Lee-Montgomery's work was featured in the exhibition, In Practice: Material Deviance, at the SculptureCenter, following her debut New York solo show, SOS ONSHORE OFFSHORE, at MEYOHAS. Her work has been featured in group shows including, things you can’t unthink at The Banff Center, Canada and ALL BYTE: Feminist Intersections in Video Art, at Franklin Street Works, Stamford, CT. She will have an upcoming solo show at Plymouth Rock in Zurich, Switzerland.
