Michèle Fuirer’s art making is a celebration of assemblage – combining, editing and bringing together images and materials –whether in moving image, printmaking or collage. Her current works consider the gendered relationship to material culture reworked through memory, identity, objects and places.
Michèle has a B.A. Combined Honours in English and Fine Art from Exeter University; an M.A. in Fine Art from Birmingham Institute of Art and Design and an M.Phil. from the Department for Contemporary Cultural Studies at Birmingham University.
She has worked for over twenty years nationally in the museum and gallery sector to engage diverse audiences in non-formal learning, leading workshops, projects and training on modern and contemporary art. Michèle has written and presented research on gallery learning at a number of conferences in the UK and beyond. Employment has included Ikon Gallery, Birmingham, CGP London, Serpentine, Hayward and Whitechapel Galleries and Tate London, where she worked initially as an artist educator and later as a curator in public programmes.
Michèle Fuirer was born in London, where she currently lives and works.
