Zoe Darling began teaching Foundations and Fine Arts courses at MIAD in 2006. Originally from Milwaukee, Darling split her educational years between the Midwest and East Coast. She received her MFA from State University of New York at Purchase College before returning to Milwaukee. Darling is a co-founder of PushPullPress Cooperative and The Healthcare Show, an on-going project including exhibitions, zines, and a blog. She also co-founded DIAA Milwaukee (Discussing Intersections: Artists & Addiction), and served several years on the board of A Broader Vocabulary Cooperative. Darling uses a wide array of techniques (printmaking, photography, drawing, sewing, and assemblage) to create unique artists’ books and experimental constructions. The human body has always been central to her work along with the personal daily rituals that illustrate the repetitious narratives that hold our daily lives together. Her work has been exhibited in NYC, Brooklyn, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Chicago, Racine, Sheboygan and Milwaukee. Darling is currently working on a memoir entitled Hurry Up, Relax (or how to start your life over).
