♡♡ cybertwee ♡♡ is excited to announce our third virtual artist talk, this time welcoming Evan Fusco to the “stage” !~*

In this cybertwee HQ virtual artist-talk series, we are super stoked to have the artists in the <<.:*cybertwee HQ*:.>> give us the behind-the-scenes scoop on their artwork in the show, & tell us about their influences, process, and how their work intersects with #cybertwee, all using tinychat and#WebRTC for screensharing!

looking at Evan Fusco’s work (http://cargocollective.com/evanfusco) has a kind of Xerox effect. photographs of photographs, prints of prints, shifting layers of simulacrum like overlain gauze lend a gaussian blur to the edges of his images and texts. it’s clear that Fusco touts the validity of the duplicate and the copy.

Fusco’s investigation of the presentation of self in the realm of hyper-real web 2.0 functions as a bird’s eye guide to navigating social media platforms for alien visitors or salted veterans. via fan art, deconstruction, and recontextilization, he looks towards how marginalized identities can be reformed online.

his irl embodiment has shown work in numerous Cleveland venues, including the collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art.

he currently has a call for art in reply to the prompt of tenderness.
