Sarah Michelson is an artist you can trust, even if you’re not exactly sure what she’s doing. Her work can thrill you even when it’s making you uncomfortable—a risk she’s willing to take. -- Village Voice

The Walker has had a long, close relationship with Michelson over the past decade, including the commissions and presentations of the ambitiously scaled Daylight (For Minneapolis) (2005) and Devotion (2011). tournamento, Michelson’s third consecutive commission from the Walker, will be presented on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the landmark Daylight (For Minneapolis), her work that was inspired by the design of the Walker’s new Herzog & de Meuron building and new theater, which opened in 2005.
