michaelaMichaela Pilar Brown

Michaela Pilar Brown is an image and object maker. She studied sculpture and art history at Howard University, though she has always been a maker of things. Born in Bangor, Maine and raised in Denver, Colorado, she cut her teeth in the halls of a museum where her mother worked as a security guard, and has been immersed in the culture of objects, their making and interpretation ever since.

Michaela will occupy studio #1 from October 1, 2015 through January 31, 2016, culminating in a curated exhibition and performance series in January.

The project Michaela will focus on:

Where They Cut Her I Bleed

A Research Project

Where They Cut Her I Bleed will be a residential research project in partnership with the Tapp’s Arts Center.  It will consist of an exploration of generational trauma using theories of materiality and memory carried out in 2 dimensional, 3 dimensional and performance art and will culminate in a curated exhibition of artists exploring these themes.
