Since the 1970’s Michael Singer’s work has opened new possibilities for outdoor and indoor sculpture and contributed to the definition of site specific art and the development of public places. Singer’s more recent work has been instrumental in transforming public art, architecture, landscape and planning projects into successful models for urban and ecological renewal. Singer’s site specific works provide elements that foster new growth and life, retain and cleanse water, create areas to witness natural systems and learn from beautiful landscapes, and are respectful of site, culture, and history.
Michael Singer received numerous awards, including fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation. His works are part of public collections in the United States and abroad, including the Australian National Gallery, Canberra; Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebaek, Denmark; Guggenheim Museum, New York; The Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. He had several one-person shows, most notably at the Guggenheim Museum, New York City and most recently in 2011-2012 at the Utzon Center in Aalborg and the Danish Architectural Center in Copenhagen, Denmark.
