A Boston-based artist, critic, and independent curator, Elizabeth Michelman’s multi-disiciplinary art inquires into the interface between language and art. Her work includes site-responsive

She has exhibited temporary environmental installation at sites throughout New England, including The Carving Studio and Sculpture Center, Montserrat College of Art, Dartmouth

Michelman writes on contemporary art for Artscope Magazine, Sculpture Magazine, and DeliciousLine.org. Her most recent curatorial project is Close to Home, site-responsive
installations by nine women artists at the Art Complex Museum at Duxbury (2017-18). She has taught courses on exhibitions and the art-language connection at Massachusetts College of Art
and Design and has lectured and organized panels on similar topics at other New England colleges and art venues. She serves as an alumni liaison for studio arts projects at Dartmouth College.
Michelman was awarded an artists residency at Wassaic in 2017 after previously serving as a visiting critic at the Chashama Foundation’s ChaNorth and the Wassaic Project. Awarded a
