Hanes Visiting Artist Lecture Series: Alex Da Corte
Alex Da Corte explores the nuances of contemporary life in his videos, installations, paintings, and sculptures, which are often united together in richly-hued, dreamlike environments. With keen attention to color and form, Da Corte draws from a wide range of sources, including popular and consumer culture, art history, and modern design. Throughout his artistic practice, figures such as Eminem, Allan Kaprow, and the Wicked Witch of the West stand on equal footing alongside objects both commonplace and fantastic. Touching upon notions of identity, intimacy, and taste, Da Corte’s work reimagines the familiar in wholly unexpected ways.
