Troy Michie at Boston University

  • Boston University, Room 346 808 Commonwealth Avenue Boston, MA 02215 (map)

Working in collage, painting, and sculptural assemblage, Troy Michie engages with the presence and absence of body through a queer lens. His work deconstructs the codes that inform our understanding race, gender, sexuality, and other fields of identity and power. Michie’s work has been exhibited in the United States and abroad, including the New Museum, the Studio Museum in Harlem, the Contemporary Arts Museum in Houston, the Stedelijk Museum-Hertogenbosch, the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art, and the Artist’s Institute. Michie attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Skowhegan, ME (2015) and was a fellow at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, MA (2016). Michie is also a recipient of an Art Matters grant (2016) and an emerging artist grant from the Rema Hort Mann foundation (2015). He received his BFA from the University of Texas El Paso and his MFA from the Yale University School of Art.
