Coco Fusco

Event Title:Art History Lecture Series presents Coco Fusco (More Information)
Event Description:

Fusco will present an artist talk in which she will discuss her most recent work.

Coco Fusco is a New York-based interdisciplinary artist, writer and Director of Intermedia Initiatives at Parsons The New School for Design. Fusco’s work combines electronic media and performance in a variety of formats, from staged multi-media performances incorporating large scale projections and closed circuit television to live performances streamed to the internet that invite audiences to chart the course of action through chat interaction. Her most recent work, a video entitled La Plaza Vacia (The Empty Plaza), was shot in the Plaza of the Revolution in Havana. It is a meditation on the legendary Cuban site as a stage devoid of human presence but filled with memories of past political performances. Fusco’s performances and videos have been presented in two Whitney Biennials (2008 and 1993), the Sydney Biennale, The Johannesburg Biennial, The Kwangju Biennale, The Shanghai Biennale, InSite O5, Mercosul, Transmediale, The London International Theatre Festival, VideoBrasil and Performa05. She is represented by Alexander Gray Associates in New York.

Presented by the Center for Art of Africa and Its Diasporas (CAAD) and the Center for Latin American Visual Studies (CLAVIS)
