Michaela Gleave is a contemporary visual artist based in Sydney, Australia.  Gleave’s conceptually driven practice spans numerous mediums and platforms, including digital and online works, installation, performance, photography, sculpture and video.  Gleave’s projects question our relationship to time, matter and space, focusing in particular on the changing intersections between art, science and society. Returning frequently to the space of the sky as a site for enquiry Gleave’s projects reference natural phenomena and tricks of perception, looking to the edges of experience as a means of better understanding the structures and frameworks that shape our knowledge of the universe.   Michaela Gleave’s work has been presented extensively across Australia as well as in Germany, Greece, The United Kingdom, Austria, Hong Kong, South Korea, Japan, Iceland, the United States and Mexico. Gleave has been awarded residencies at the International Studio and Curatorial Program in New York City, Tokyo Wonder Site in Japan, and was resident artist with CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science during 2012-13. She won the 2015 Churchie National Emerging Art Prize and was awarded a prestigious Creative Australia Fellowship from the Australia Council for the Arts in 2013. Michaela Gleave is represented by Anna Pappas Gallery, Melbourne.
