Michael C. Andrews
Mike Andrews’ tapestries, sculptures, and animations taunt the categorizations of textile, cinema, and object. His hybrid approach to making is fueled by the desires and anxieties of a schizophrenic and body conscious culture. Exhibitions include MCA Chicago, Dan Devening Projects and Exhibitions in Chicago, IL, The Chicago Cultural Center, and PENELOPE in New York City. Upcoming projects include a new series of large-scale hand-tufted drawings , a residency at A-Z West in Joshua Tree, CA, and a presentation on digitally simulated textiles at the 2017 CAA conference in New York City. Mike Andrews is full time faculty in the Fiber and Material Studies department at School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) as well as the Summer Academic Advisor at Ox-Bow School of the Arts and Artists Residency.
