Professor Micol Hebron is a video and performance artist who has worked out of Los Angeles for the past 15 years. Originally from Northern California, Professor Hebron has studied at UCSD, the Accademia Di Belle Arti in Venice, Italy, and UCLA. She received her MFA in New Genres from UCLA in 2000. She maintains active involvement in the Los Angeles art community in numerous ways. In 1997 she founded Gallery B-12, a cooperative artist-run exhibition and lecture space in Hollywood. In 2002 and 2003 she co-produced the Full Nelson Festival, a showcase of international performance art.  In 2004 she founded the LA Art Girls, a collective of 30+ women artists in the LA area. LA Art Girls is a post-graduate critique group dedicated to furthering critical discourse and inspiring continued creative practice amongst professional women artists in Los Angeles.

Professor Hebron sits on the editorial board of X-Tra magazine, and she currently writes for Art Forum, Flash Art International, and Arte Contexto. She has an active exhibition practice and has exhibited, performed and lectured throughout the US and in Europe. Her most recent solo show was at Sabina Lee Gallery in Los Angeles, and she will be performing and moderating a panel at the National Review of Live Art in Glasgow, Scotland in February of 2008. She is currently working on a book project titled "1 Image 1 Minute", which will be a selection of 1-minute narratives by various art world professionals speaking about individual photographs that are significant to them.

Since receiving her MFA, Professor Hebron has held teaching positions in new genres and contemporary art history and theory at Art Center College of Design, UCLA Extension, and Chaffey College. She has presented lectures and papers at the Society for Photographic Education, Pepperdine University, UCLA, the University of Tennessee, the San Francisco Art Institute, and The Getty Center, among other institutions. She is ecstatic to be able to call Chapman her home now, and is looking forward to helping to build courses of study in Video Art, Performance Art, and Digital Media.
