Michael Shaw


Michael Shaw is an artist, musician and educator based in London. His interdisciplinary practice dances around notions of failure, control and mis-direction, that he explores through live performances, public interventions, staged events, assemblages and experiments often teetering on the point of collapse.

Often working under an alias, he has produced work across different platforms that include radio, television, contemporary dance and mobile phones. He has released music on Adaadat, Big Dada, 4th Harmonic and Stationary Records.

Alongside his practice, he has worked as a guest lecturer at educational institutions such as Goldsmiths, University of London and The Bartlett, UCL, London, UK and delivered artist talks and workshops at a number of institutions including the Science Museum, Institute of Contemporary Arts and Kinetica Gallery, London, UK.
