Allyson Packer makes artwork that explores our relationship with the built environment. In her installations, she engages viewers to examine the myths and values embedded in the spaces we inhabit from day-to-day. Packer earned her M.F.A. from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and her B.F.A. from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She has shown work at Nahmad Projects in London and the Hyde Park Art Center in Chicago, in addition to solo exhibitions at venues across the United States. Most recently, she completed a collaborative project with students at Montgomery College called Sit-In/Walk Out, which explored the possibilities of protest as a creative form.
