The Department of Art and Art History's Studio Lecture Series presents Coco Fusco.
Coco Fusco is an interdisciplinary artist and writer based in New York whose work explores the politics of gender, race, war, and identity. Fusco's work has been shown at the Museum of Modern Art, the Walker Art Center, KW Institute for Contemporary Art, and the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art. She is also a recipient of a 2018 Rabkin Prize for Art Criticism. Her latest book, Dangerous Moves: Performance and Politics in Cuba (Tate Publications, 2015), is a survey of contemporary life and culture in Cuba told through some of its most daring experimental artists. Fusco received her B.A. in Semiotics from Brown University (1982), her M.A. in Modern Thought and Literature from Stanford University (1985), and her Ph.D. in Art and Visual Culture from Middlesex University (2007).
