NEW YORK, NY.- Gasser Grunert presents a drawing/video/performance exhibition by Michael Alan.

Michael Alan creates moments in time that overlap drawing, painting, sculpture, music and video. They inspire live performance and installation happenings. All of his work begins with drawings. These drawings serve as the foundation for his installations, performances, and videos. Working with a team of performers, Alan assembles living installations where all these creative elements merge.

Harmonious Opposites is about the beauty of balance in a state of extreme cultural and artistic change. It includes large and small works on paper and wood panel, a video installation, and on the closing night, Thursday July 29th, a 6 hour Living Installation performance entitled, "Cleaning the Clouds". The public is invited to come watch, participate, draw, and write at this performance.

A celebration of movement, Harmonious Opposites explores the act of occupying and embodying multiple spaces at once, without confusion. The creative process behind it reflects this idea. Pushing the boundaries of drawing, painting, and performance, it dissects and amplifies, samples, and distorts media and bodies with a touch of pretty.

Alan lives and works in New York City. His work has been featured in 5 New York solo shows and over 200 group shows. His work has been discussed in over 200 publications, books and media sources, including the New York Times (video & print), NBC’s Today Show, Marie Claire Italia, The New York Post, Fox Channel 5, the Village Voice, Time Out New York, the New York Press, and the cover of ShowPaper.
