    Anthony Aziz

    Profile

    Anthony Aziz is a professor of fine art and photography and the Associate Dean of Faculty at Parsons. Currently he also serves as the Director of the MFA Fine Arts program. He and his collaborator of 30 years, Sammy Cucher, have been exhibiting their prints, sculpture, textiles, animations and multi-channel video installations in museums and festivals world-wide, including shows at the 46th Venice Biennale, MASS MoCA, the Biennale de Lyon, the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the List Visual Art Center at MIT, the Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid, and the Fondation Cartier in Paris, among other venues. Their images, objects and installations are meant to reflect on the boundaries of identity at a time when these are becoming increasingly fluid and undefined. Often a synthesis of reality and fiction, their work tries to reveal the pathologies associated with unfettered globalization, post-human conditions and the intersections between the social, the biological, and the technological. In all their projects they are searching for a visual poetics that can express both the anxieties and expectations of living in such a moment. Aziz received his MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1990, and is the recipient of awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, and the New York Foundation for the Arts.  For more information see: www.azizcucher.net
