In Some Form or Fashion

Troy Montes-Michie

(born 1985, El Paso, Texas; lives and works in Brooklyn, NY) is an interdisciplinary painter and collage artist. His work engages Black consciousness, Latinx experience, immigration and queerness through assemblage and juxtaposition through his work. Utilizing textile, garment, and archival paper, from newsprint to pornography, Michie subverts dominant narratives by placing past and present in confrontation. The resulting work is a non-linear extolification of political resistance and transgressive self-expression and gesture.

Recent exhibitions include those at Philbrook Museum of Art, Tulsa, OK; Kunsthal KAdE, Amersfoort, Netherlands; The MAC Belfast, Ireland; The Shed, New York, NY; and Contemporary Art Museum, Houston, TX, among others. His work was featured in the 2019 Whitney Biennial. Awards and residencies include Recess Art, the Emerging Artist Grant and Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture.
