Michael Borowski uses photography, installation, and performance to look at the ways societal values inform the design of urban environments. Metaphors of construction and building run throughout his interdisciplinary art practice, which explores themes of migration, intimacy, belonging, sexuality and identity in rural towns, and the blurring of public and private life. His work has been exhibited in the Louisville Photo Biennial (Louisville, KY), The New Mexico Museum of Art (Santa Fe, NM), Prairie Center for the Arts (Peoria, IL), and Espace Projet (Montreal, QC.) He has designed public interventions for Flux Factory, Art in Odd Places, and FIGMENT (New York, NY) and has been awarded residencies at Elsewhere, Millay Colony, and Est Nord Est. He holds an MFA from the University of Michigan, and a BFA from the University of New Mexico.
Michael is based in Blacksburg, VA where he is an Assistant Professor of photography at Virginia Tech.
