Michael Edwards comes from a background in the visual arts exploring intersections of art and science while flirting with absurdity and embracing serendipity. He has always utilized an inter-disciplinary approach to his conceptual creative practice, drawing audiences into fascinating dialogues about the boundaries of these not-so-separate disciplines. He received a BFA in painting from the Rhode Island School of Design, and a Master of Science in art and technology from Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden. He has participated it numerous exhibitions in North America, Europe and The Bahamas. Selected venues include Cinque Gallery, New York; The Boston Center for the Arts–Mills Gallery; Trollhättan Art Museum, Sweden; FYR arte contemporanea, Italy; Nassauischer Kunstverein, Germany, and The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas (NAGB).
Among his recent activities is a collaboration to develop and brand an international interdisciplinary arts residency venture to connect artists and other creative practitioners on both sides of the Atlantic.
He has been a visiting critic at Valand School of Fine Arts, The University of Gothenburg and co-curated the Seventh National Exhibition (NE7), Antillean: An Ecology, at the NAGB. Presently, he is a lecturer in the School of Communications and Creative Arts at The College of The Bahamas.
