Mollye Bendell uses the intangible nature of electronic media as a metaphor for exploring vulnerability, visibility, and longing in a world that can feel isolating. She has recently been an artist-in-residence at Wave Farm/WGXC, the Harvestworks Digital Media Arts Center and at the Tides Institute and Museum of Art. Her solo work has been exhibited in venues such as the Baltimore Museum of Art, the New York Electronic Arts Festival, and Maryland Art Place. In 2019, with two collaborators in strikeWare collective, Mollye was awarded a Robert W. Deutsch Foundation Rubys Artist Grant to explore how the history of Black education continues to shape Baltimore City. The resulting exhibition, RENOVATIONS, presented new primary source research on the first nine African American students to graduate public high school in Baltimore. In 2020, strikeWare were named Janet + Walter Sondheim Artscape Prize finalists. Mollye holds a BA in Sculpture from the Glasgow School of Art and an MFA in Intermedia and Digital Arts from UMBC. She lives and works in Baltimore, Maryland.
