Michael Stickrod was born in Columbus, Ohio in 1978. He received a BFA from the Ohio State University in 2003 and an MFA from Yale University in 2005. He currently lives and works in NY. Stickrod's work has been exhibited internationally. Recent exhibitions include: "We Drink to Your Health and Wish You Were Here" at Hesaid Shesaid, Chicago, IL, 2009; "Altoids Award" at New Museum, New York, NY, 2008; "MMM" at Cherry and Martin, Los Angeles, CA, 2008; "Technically Sweet" at Participant Inc./ Anthology Film Archives, New York, NY and Overgaden, Copenhagen, Denmark, 2008; "Les Amis de mes amis…" at VF Galerie, Marseille, France 2007 and "My Backyard" at Newman Popiashvili, New York, NY, 2007 Michael Stickrod’s videos are mesmerizing constructions of personal family documentations that range from reel-to-reel audio recordings of his mother’s memories, to scans of her paintings, to video that Stickrod shot observing his parents’ daily lives. The woven portraits of his father and mother become non-linear and abstract statements on life lived in the day-to-day. Jarrett Gregory of the New Museum writes, “The films capture a Depression-era sensibility and are reminiscent of works by American playwrights Eugene O’Neill and Arthur Miller, both of whom have investigated the struggle for autonomy within a family and the dissolution of the American Dream.”
