His interdisciplinary work has been exhibited at The Hammer Museum and Getty Center in Los Angeles; Museo de Arte Contemporáneo in Bahia Blanca, Argentina; S.M.A.K. Museum, Gent, Belgium.

Long interested in community-building and alternative ways of exhibiting and curating art, in 2008 Michael co-founded with fellow artist Eve Fowler Artist Curated Projects (ACP), an artist-run nomadic space operating from the artists homes. ACP grew to include shows at other artist's houses, commercial galleries and non-profit art spaces, including Art Production Fund's LAB space (NY), Pasadena Armory Center for the Arts, and a series of artist-led tea ceremonies at the iconic Schindler House in Los Angeles. To this day, ACP has worked with over 150 artists.
