GSA Award. Alan Michelson highlights border-crossing issues
18th Sydney Biennale participant Alan Michelson
Born in 1953 in Buffalo, New York, of a young Mohawk mother who was forced to give him up for adoption. Alan Michelson was raised in a non-Native family in Massachusetts, he learned of his Six Nations ancestry while attending art school. This life-changing discovery informs his artistic practice in that he reveals the hidden, whether in the realm of space or time.
