Hope to see you there!
Michael Rakowitz’s work confronts our shared political consciousness
through performance, sculpture, graphic design and derives
it particular poignancy from an engagement with the world that is
at once pragmatic and poetic. His work has appeared in venues
worldwide, including: P.S.1, MoMA, MassMOCA, Castello di
Rivoli, the 10th Istanbul Biennial, Sharjah Biennial 8, Tirana
Biennale, National Design Triennial at the Cooper Hewitt,
Transmediale 05, and 16th Biennale of Sydney 2008. His recent
public project, Return, was presented by Creative Time in New
York. He is the recipient of a 2008 Creative Capital Grant for a
collaboration with Emna Zghal, the Sharjah Biennial Jury Award, a
2006 New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship Grant in
Architecture and Environmental Structures, the 2003 Dena
Foundations Award, and the 2002 Design 21 Grand Prix from
UNESCO. Rakowitz is also Contributing Editor for Surface
Tension: A Journal on Spatial Arts.
