Moira Holohan was born and raised in New York, NY.  She holds a B.A., with a concentration in Painting, from Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, NY and an MFA from Hunter College, New York, NY, where she was the recipient of the Tom Wood Award. Holohan was awarded the Tigertail Production Artist Access Grant in 2014 to support her artist in residence at the Hangar art space in Barcelona this past summer.  She was recently part of The Fringe Project (Art Days in Downtown Miami), curated by Amanda Sanfilippo and the New Work Miami 2013 exhibition at the Perez Art Museum Miami co-curated by René Morales and Diana Nawi.
Moira Holohan’s work has been exhibited in Miami: The Fringe Projects, Art Days in Downtown Miami, Miami-Dade College Museum of Art + Design, Perez Art Museum Miami, Frost Art Museum, Optic Nerve: MoCA North Miami, Art and Cultural Center of Hollywood, Art Center South Florida, de la Cruz Collection, Girls Club(on-line exhibition), Deering Estate and General Practice. In New York: Regina Rex. Greene County Council on the Arts, Steuben Gallery(Pratt Institute) and AC Institute.

She employs a wide range of media: video animation, sculpture, photography and printmaking to examine the relationship of the performative body, physical form and the struggles of authenticity. Through a process grounded in experimentation and narrative, she breaks down and reassembles structures that explore craftsmanship and object making, referencing art history, historical devices and narratives. The final constructs are subtle assemblages stressing evidence of mark-making, handwork, performance and time.
