Michael Jones McKean (born in Micronesia, 1976; lives in Richmond, VA) works through poetic, mysterious, and seemingly impenetrable narratives in discreet sculptural forms and large-scale installations. Each piece points to a vast matrix of disparate voices speaking to the historical, natural, and mythological—an allusive dialogue at odds with the absolute materiality of his three-dimensional works.

McKean is the recipient of numerous awards including a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Nancy Graves Foundation Award, and an Artadia Award. His work has been included in solo and group exhibitions at the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College, NY; Parisian Laundry, Montreal; Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, Omaha; and Grand Arts, Kansas City; among others. Currently he is Associate Professor of Sculpture and New Media at Virginia Commonwealth University.

Concurrent with McKean’s residency, a solo exhibition of his work will be on view at Emerson Dorsch Gallery, opening May 17.
