Visual artist Troy Michie was born and raised in El Paso, Texas. He received his B.F.A. from the University of Texas at El Paso and his M.F.A. from the Yale School of Art. His work has been included in group exhibitions at the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Shed, the VCU Institute of Contemporary Art, the Metropolitan Arts Centre Belfast, the New Museum, the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, the Studio Museum in Harlem, and the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art. His first solo exhibition, "Fat Cat Came To Play," was at Company Gallery, and his work is a part of the Whitney Museum of American Art collection. He is the recipient of an Art Matters grant and has participated in residencies at Recess Art, the Skowhegan School of Painting, the Fine Arts Work Center, and Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Workspace program. As a Hodder Fellow, he researched self-fashioning and camouflage theory as a guide to describe the ways in which bodies can become alternately erased and fetishized, made invisible and hyper-visible.
