Working across painting and social practices, among other mediums, Michele King opens doors into the perception of ourselves and our relationship with the world. She combines her creative process with methods from her past life as an urban planner, where she focused on links between human behavior and society. King has been exhibiting her paintings for close to twenty years and collaborating on cross-cultural projects for a decade. She is passionate about making contemporary art accessible, as a bridge across borders for connecting with oneself and others in times of uncertainty.
Recent endeavors include The Poetics of Light exhibition (with Truong Tran) at Avenue 12 Gallery in San Francisco, Making Neighbourhoods research grant and exhibition at Placa de la Vila de Gracia in Barcelona (with Elif Gulen and Isidor Fernandez), and an art+science collaboration hosted by the Stanford Urban Resilience Lab. Ongoing work includes The Color of Belonging research and creative translations, the Mirror Neurons series, and collaborative site specific projects.
