Michaela Gleave is a visual artist currently based in Sydney, Australia. Working across a range of media including installation, performance, photography and video, Gleaveʼs often-temporal works question our relationship to space, matter and time, involving natural phenomena and tricks of perception within the context of the systems and structures that shape our understanding of the universe. Gleave holds a Master of Fine Arts (Research) from the College of Fine Arts, UNSW, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours First Class) from the School of Art Hobart, UTAS.
She has won numerous grants and prizes, including a Creative Australia Fellowship from the Australia Council for the Arts, a Marten Bequest Travelling Scholarship, Australia Council for the Arts New Work Grants, and has been granted project support from the Ian Potter Cultural Trust, the National Association for the Visual Arts, and the City of Melbourne among others. Gleave has had work included in exhibitions in Germany, Hong Kong, South Korea and Mexico, as well as exhibiting extensively across Australia.
She has participated in residency programs in New York, Tokyo, Berlin and Iceland, and was artist-in-residence with CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science in 2012-13. Michaela Gleave is represented by Anna Pappas Gallery, Melbourne.
