Michelle Grabner is known for her broad perspective developed as teacher, writer and critic over the past 30 years. The site where it all comes together is the studio. Her artmaking is driven by a distinctive value in the productivity of work and takes place outside of dominant systems. In this episode, Michelle Grabner walks viewers through the making of the paintings, wood-panel and ceramic works on view in her latest exhibition at James Cohan, as well as her site-specific installation at the Art Preserve at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, WI.
This film was made on the occasion of Michelle Grabner's exhibition at James Cohan, on view March 5 - April 3, 2021.
