Rachel Yezbick is a visual artist whose work grapples with the intersections between the personal and political, using video, performance, drawing and collage to understand the culturally specific ideologies that shape not only the individual but also the very nature of human interaction. Yezbick attended Michigan State University for her undergraduate and graduate coursework in the social sciences. In 2009 she completed her M.A. in Cultural Anthropology and was published by Wayne State University Press in the edited volume Arab Detroit 9/11: Life in the Terror Decade. From 2011-2013 Yezbick lived in Glasgow, Scotland where she explored the connections between anthropology and her art practice. While in Glasgow she exhibited at Transmission Gallery and was commissioned for two solo shows at Studio 41 and the artist run gallery New City Space. Yezbick presently resides in Detroit where she is examining local attitudes towards safety and security.
