Virginia Lee Montgomery


VLM (b. 1986; Houston, TX) is an artist working between Texas and New York, primarily in video, performance, sound, and sculpture. She received her BFA from The University of Texas at Austin in 2008 and her MFA from Yale University in 2016. VLM deploys an idiosyncratic visual vocabulary of repeating gestures like drilling, dousing, or reaching and recursive symbols like circles, holes and spheres as she interrogates the complex relationship between physical and psychic structures. VLM also works as a professional mind-map scribe, a Graphic Facilitator. Recent exhibitions include VLM: SKY LOOP, Lawndale Art Center, Houston, TX (2020); SCREENS SERIES: VLM, New Museum, NY (2019); HONEY MOON, Times Square Arts, NY (2019); PONY COCOON, False Flag, NY (2019); Socrates Annual, Socrates Sculpture Park, NY (2018); CRASH TEST, La Panacée, Montpellier, France (2018); An unbound knot in the wind, CCS Bard, Hessel Museum of Art, NY (2018); Material Deviance, SculptureCenter, NY (2017); Particle Accelerator Memorial Project, Yale University, CT (2015).
