Biography

Michèle graduated from Exeter University in 1979 with a B.A. Combined Honours in English and Fine Art. From 1980 to 1984 she worked as Assistant to the Gallery Manager, and then Touring Exhibitions Officer for the Ikon Gallery in Birmingham. During this period she also worked as an artist across both community education and art education. This developed later into the emergent profession of ‘artist educator’, working with audiences inside museums and galleries. Michèle has created projects and collaborations with a number of contemporary art galleries and museums, working with a diverse and wide ranging audience.

The artist completed an M.Phil. in the Department for Contemporary Cultural Studies at Birmingham University in 1989 and in 1992 an M.A. in Fine Art from Birmingham Institute of Art and Design, where her work was mainly within sculpture and installation. Since 1995 she has been working with the moving image as an extension of and departure from the medium of photography. This in turn has led to small-scale performance based work sometimes for camera, and sometimes in the public realm.

Michèle Fuirer was born in London where she currently lives and works.
