Michael Linares



Through a wide variety of media, Michael Linares (Bayamon, 1979) consistently raises the possibility of new relationships between objects and signification in his practice. Mixing the foreign with the familiar and the marvelous with the mundane, he disorganizes what is perceived as common sense, to create unexpected combinations that foster new aesthetic and intellectual understanding. He has recently held exhibitions at Beta-Local, San Juan, 2015; Galería AgustinaFerreyra,San Juan, 2015; Art in General,NY, 2015; MACO Art Fair Solo Project, Mexico City, 2014; and Ltd Los Angeles, 2013.He is the founder of La Sonora, a free online audiotheque that contains translations of texts relevant to contemporary art discourse and culture. Linares is also in the process of obtaining an MA in archaeology.
