Michael Ano

The primary question of Michael Ano’s research is how can we show care for those who are near and far—contemplating care in the formal (teacher-to-student, mentor-to-mentee, doctor-to-patient) and the informal (lover-to-lover, friend-to-friend, relative-to-relative) sense. Secondarily, Michael is interested in how he can portray these explorations of care as discrete visual objects. Currently Michael is developing a new body of work, CAT124: EXHIBTION BUILDING, an ongoing experimental performance and exhibition series contemplating the intersections of pedagogy, para-institutional practice, labor, and institutional critique.
