Bunker Projects says
Opening Reception: Feb. 5, 7-10pm
On view until Feb. 28

With Stint, Michael Koliner is filling the Bunker Projects gallery space with a wooden framework accompanied by both machine- and hand-made sculptures. Koliner builds in a responsive mode to insert radicalism into determined spaces in the city. Interested in the development along Penn Avenue, Koliner’s work weaves Bunker’s interior and exterior facade together through the installation of a structure composed of waste materials. Pulling from various architectural histories, Koliner questions aesthetic issues such as ornamentation and constructivism. Stint is the amalgamation of Koliner’s work since December and will be composed to incite uncertainty in himself as well as his audience.

In addition to gallery exhibition, Koliner will be collaborating with Robert Beach on an experimental pavilion fabricated entirely from CNC’ed (Computer Numeric Control) cardboard parts.

Michael's residency will be accompanied by a series of informal events throughout the month, featuring other artists working in similar spaces including Oreen Cohen, Natalia Gonzalez, and Ron Copeland. More information to be announced through the Bunker Projects facebook page.


Michael Koliner is an artist born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He came into his sculptural practice with early experiences sneaking into steel mills and building skateparks. Michael graduated from The Maryland Institute College of Art with a Bachelor’s in Fine Art for interdisciplinary sculpture and art history. Since then he has built sculpture in order to incite movement and contemplation. His projects range from wooden/ mud structures, digitally fabricated objects and performance. He has shown with Fung Collaboratives in Washington D.C for the exhibition Nonuments in 2014 and was invited again this past year for his solo public art demonstration titled Harambee in Redwood City, California. Last summer he was awarded: Neu Kirche Contemporary Art Center's Fallow Grounds Residency, Penland School of Craft's Nancy Windgate Fellowship, and Vermont Studio Center's Artist Supporting Artist Fellowship with Nari Ward. Michael is now continuing his practice with Bunker Project and teaches at Techshop Pittsburgh as well as The Mattress Factory.
