Michael Stevenson

°1964, Inglewood (NZ) – lives and works in Berlin (DE)

The practice of Michael Stevenson, consisting of paintings, drawings, sculptures, installations and film, embraces both conceptual and object art. He is particularly interested in historical moments that demonstrate the interaction between art and economics, often starting from a singular story concerning intersecting figures and events, both public and private. As his work delivers traces of those stories in a manner akin to archaeology, Stevenson has often been described as an ‘anthropologist of the avant-garde’.

Michael Stevenson has had numerous solo exhibitions, including shows at SculptureCenter, New York; Portikus, Frankfurt am Main; and CCA Wattis Institute, San Francisco. His work has also been shown in several group exhibitions at venues such Tate Modern, London; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; MACBA, Barcelona; and The Power Plant, Toronto. He participated at the 8th Liverpool Biennial; Berlin Biennale 8 & 6; the 2nd Athens Biennale; and represented New Zealand at the 50th Venice Biennial in 2003.

His work is also present in many important public and private collections, such as National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; Queensland Art Gallery, Brisbane; and Museum of New Zealand, Wellington.
