2019 JUROR – Michael Mergen
Michael Mergen is an artist based in Farmville, VA, where he is an Assistant Professor of Photography at Longwood University. His work has been featured in The New York Times Magazine, Harper’s, Mother Jones, and exhibited nationally and internationally.
His work considers sites of our shared civic participation and contemporary landscapes layered with historic memorialization. Earlier series documented the locations in which the responsibilities of citizenship are enacted, and more recently, the landscape of political legacy and memory of Virginia and the South.
