Michael Mersereau (b. 1977) is an interdisciplinary artist based in Oakland, California. He explores the boundaries of cinema and television genres, including horror, suspense, and soap operas, to create experimental sound, video, performance, and installations that elevate specific film production elements, resulting in absurd and uncanny worlds. Mersereau has exhibited internationally at museums and galleries such as Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Oaxaca and Oaxaca Graphic Arts Institute in Oaxaca de Juarez, Mexico; The Diego Rivera Anahuacalli Museum in Mexico City; Eastern Bloc and Maison de la Culture Claude-Léveillée in Montréal, Canada; and Wassaic Projects in New York State. His videos have been screened at the Lausanne Underground Film Festival, The Torrance Art Museum in Los Angeles California, Traverse Video Festival, and ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum in Denmark, among numerous other film festivals and galleries. As a composer and experimental musician, he has performed at The Lab with Jeanie Aprille Tang, Galerie B312 in Montréal for Thomas Begin, Sala Elia in Oaxaca de Juarez, Mexico, and Mills College Art Museum with choreographer and dancer Molissa Fenley. Mersereau plays guitar, electroacoustic music and Expanded cinema. He holds an MFA from Mills College and a BFA from California College of the Arts.
