Megan Gafford is an artist and writer based in New York City. She creates visual essays for her publication Fashionably Late Takes, where she addressed the risky research that Biosafety Now aims to regulate in her inaugural essay “When Curiosity Kills the Cat”, from her perspective as something of a mad scientist. Gafford has spent the past decade making art about science, and then with it. In her studio practice, she has repurposed unsettling scientific tools like radiation and cybernetics to create artwork that commingles eeriness and elegance. Gafford has shown her work with galleries and museums across North America, including exhibitions with the Jones Institute (San Francisco, California), Galerie Robertson Arès (Montréal, Québec), SITE Gallery Houston (Houston, Texas), David B. Smith Gallery (Denver, Colorado), the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art (Boulder, Colorado), and the Backyard Ballroom (New Orleans, Louisiana). Her essays have been published by the Tilt West Journal, Quillette, Arc Digital, and Areo Magazine. She teaches drawing classes online for the University of Colorado at Denver.
