Rebecca Williams / Summer 2014

Rebecca Williams was born and raised in Connecticut. As a multidisciplinary artist, her work focuses on fictional and nonfictional representations of the female nude figure through performance, video, sculpture, installation, and photography. Using humor through farce, satire, and the absurd, Williams addresses the oddities and discomforts of gender, sexuality, and identity formation. She situates herself in public and private environments to inspect the corollaries between historic representation and biological spectacle.

Williams is a current MFA Candidate at Tufts University and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. She received her BA in Visual Arts from Fordham University.
