VIEW ALL ARTWORK

Biography:

Born and raised in southeastern Massachusetts, Michael attended Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston where he studied printmaking, painting, sound, film and all aspects of performance art. As an independent producer, Michael went on to organize performance and multi-media shows at various venues around Boston, including the Boston Institute of Contemporary Art, Harvard Film Archives, Mobius Performance Gallery and for the Eventworks Arts Festival. In 2001 along with his wife, artist Monika Pizzichemi, he co-founded Empty Set Project Space which served as a necessary meeting place for local artists during the early years of Pittsfield’s cultural rebirth. It now serves as a part time gallery and full time art studio.
