Michaela Mosher: Artist and Curator at the N’Namdi Center

Michaela Mosher’s job as gallery coordinator at the N’Namdi Center for Contemporary Art makes her a key player behind-the-scenes of Detroit’s art world, but she is also an accomplished artist in her own right beyond her work as a coordinator and exhibition designer.

Originally from Flint and educated at CCS, Mosher is a multi-disciplinary artist with an emphasis on installation and performance. We are so excited to welcome her back to Dlectricity to present “PRIMETIME,” a project featuring multiple video installations and live performances curated by Mosher.

Mosher and Dlectricity curatorial and production manager Alivia Zivich will both be presenting video installations in the show, along with artists Katie Barkel, Oren Goldenberg and Chris Tysh, Kaio Huvaere and Matteus Huvaere, Ginny Martin, Oksana Mirzoyan, Clifford B. West and Harry Bertoia.

Theater company “A Host of People” (Sherrine Azab and Jake Hooker, with Torri Lynn Ashford, Aja Salakastar Dier, Karilú Alarcón Forshee, Chantel Gaidica, Chris Jakob, Billy Mark, Dorothy Melander-Dayton, Sam Moltmaker, and Maddy Rager) will present live performances of “Neither There, Nor Here,” an original multimedia interdisciplinary play directed by Sherrine Azab that examines the experiences of people with liminal identities of race, gender, culture and sexuality. Performers create dishes representative of their mixed identities, using the format of a cooking show to guide the work.

Mosher’s work in exhibition design is currently on view at the N’Namdi Center exhibition, “Round in Circles,” on view through August 26. The installation and performances for “PRIMETIME” will also be held at the N’Namdi Center. Thank you so much to the N’Namdi Center for hosting this project!
