Maggie Kubley was born in Indiana, grew up in Indiana, and received her BA in Theatre from Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, before moving to Chicago in 2006.
She participates in the theatre world as a multimedia performance artist and in the art world as a collage artist. Her performance practice weaves works of original video, music, and comedy around feminist themes to create evening-length performances.
Kubley’s collage does much of the same, using found paper ephemera, personal journals, and self-portraits to create razor-sharp reflections on the midwestern female experience.
Kubley's work has been presented as part of Steppenwolf Theater’s Lookout Series (Chicago), Pivot Arts Fest (Chicago), The Fly Honey Show (Chicago), Woman Made Gallery (Chicago), and at The Chicago Cultural Center.
