Marcella is Ojibwe. She is Gunflint Lake Chippewa and an enrolled member of the Bad River Band of Lake Superior and has heritage that includes Eastern European ancestry. Marcella is a Native feminist theorist of visual culture, sound studies and contemporary art, who engages in collaborative work both intellectually and as practice. Her archival research and processes of historical interpretation has led to explorations of visual textures combined with audio experiments. Currently, her work draws from oral histories and family photos as sites of memory and open-ended reflections on politics of place, and the varying relationships between social art history, gender, and Indigenous land justice. Marcella holds a PhD in American Studies and is currently an Assistant Professor of Native Art History with the Department of Art Studio, History and Education at the University of New Mexico.
