Michael Bühler-Rose, born in New Jersey, lives and works in New York City. He received a Fulbright Fellowship to India, obtained his BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and MFA from University of Florida. His work often times falls within two categories: 1. The relationship between the art object and the artist, as a parallel to a venerated deity and a priest, and aesthetic experience as ultimately religious. 2. A dynamic idea of place, through media and art history. More recent work and curated projects have been exhibited at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts, Delhi; Vogt Gallery, New York; Chatterjee and Lal, Mumbai; Nature Morte, New Delhi; and Carroll and Sons, Boston. His work is held in the Sammlung Goetz, Munich, the Die Photographische Sammlung, Cologne, and the Harvard Fogg Museum.
