    Michael Arcega’s creative research is a poetic investigation around power dynamics and marginalized communities. He uses object-metaphors to make sculptures, installations, and activations that critique historic and political narratives. This work has been exhibited in galleries and museums internationally and has been discussed in academic journals, art publications and a range of media platforms. He is an Associate Professor at San Francisco State University and heads the Sculpture and Expanded Practice area in the School of Art. He serves on the curatorial boards at Root Division Gallery and the Recology Artist in Residency Program. Arcega holds a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and an MFA from Stanford University and maintains a studio in San Francisco.
