Michael Mandiberg

Michael Mandiberg (b. 1977, Detroit, USA) lives and works in New York, USA. An interdisciplinary artist, Mandiberg’s work manifests the poetics and politics of the information age. Mandiberg works within systems to make visible processes that are often hidden in plain sight, or on public web servers. While technically sophisticated, Mandiberg’s work exceeds simple novelty to make propositions about how our lives are being shaped by these tools, and the ideologies undergirding them. Their work has been included in exhibitions at venues worldwide including: the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The New Museum, Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, Arizona State University Museum and Library, Denny Gallery, Eyebeam, and Transmediale, and are in the permanent collections of the Stedelijk Museum and 21c Museum.  Mandiberg is Professor of Media Culture at the College of Staten Island/CUNY and Doctoral Faculty at the CUNY Graduate Center. He received an MFA from California Institute of the Arts and a BA from Brown University.

Mandiberg is the recipient of a LACMA Art+Technology Lab grant, three Eyebeam fellowships, a Mellon fellowship at the CUNY Graduate Center, several Wikimedia Foundation grants, and commissions from Rhizome,, and Link Art Center/Abandon Normal Devices. Mandiberg’s work has been written about widely, including in Artforum, Art in America, ARTnews, the New York Times, the New Yorker, and the Wall Street Journal.
