Michelle C. Gevint


Michelle C. Gevint (1980) is an Israeli-American interdisciplinary artist currently based in Brooklyn. Her work examines personal and social relationships to architectural spaces and built environments specifically touching on topics such as displacement, alienation, and failure.Through images, videos, and installations she reflects on the power of cultural myths and archetypes in a contemporary context.

Gevint obtained my BFA from Bezalel Art Academy, Jerusalem and moved to NYC after receiving a scholarship to complete my MFA at Parsons. Selected group exhibitions and residencies include The Bronx Museum of Art, AIM Biennial, Fridman gallery, NYC, NYABF Moma PS1, Lanzia Museum, Poland, 2-person exhibition at Local projects gallery space, LIC, NY, Governors Island Art Faire, Trestle Gallery residency and group exhibition, NY, Hermitage Museum, Russia, Beijing Design Festival, China, Auckland Photo Festival, NZ, Sotheby's Chicago, MICA, Baltimore, G91, NY, Marble House Residency, VT, Vermont studio center, VT.
