“… I wanted to make sense out of the clashes between cultures that cause so many of us so much trouble and pain, but I chose to do so within the realm of art.” -Coco Fusco
Internationally acclaimed artist Coco Fusco presents an artist talk in the UCF Art Gallery.
Coco Fusco is an interdisciplinary artist, writer and curator, who lives and works in Gainesville, FL. Much of her work explores the politics of gender, race, war and identity through multi-media productions incorporating large-scale projections, closed-circuit television, web-based live streaming performances with audience interaction, as well as performances at cultural events that actively engage with the audience.
