Michelle Burdine is an artist and educator who creates photographic and multi-media work. Her visual exploration of socially constructed systems is built on foundational studies in the humanities. Her research makes visible the physical, psychogenic, and material interchanges between social institutions and personhood through explorations of social expectations imposed on the inhabitants of menstruating bodies.
Burdine's work has been exhibited in solo exhibitions at the Robert & Elaine Stein Galleries, in Dayton, OH; Meadows Museum of Art at Centenary College of Shreveport, in Shreveport LA; and University Art Gallery, in Terre Haute, IN among many other solo and group exhibitions. Her work was featured in Hyperallergic in January 2023.
Burdine holds a Master of Fine Arts from The Ohio State University; a Master of Humanities from Wright State University; and a BA in Humanities from Antioch Midwest. Burdine has been teaching photography at the post-secondary level since 2007 and is currently an Assistant Professor of Photography at Centre College in Danville, KY.
