Alex Tsocanos is an interdisciplinary artist and educator. She explores the relationship between pedagogical tools, imaginative play, and self-determination. Often looking through the lens of gender, politics, and the American landscape, she uses elements of photography, sculpture, immersive theater, and social practice to highlight the constructed nature of cultural narratives and our ability to reimagine them.
Tsocanos received her MFA in Photography from Cranbrook Academy of Art and her BA in the self-designed major “Anthropology Through the Visual Arts” from NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study. She has been a lecturer and visiting artist at Rhode Island School of Design, Bennington College, SculptureCenter, Oakland University, and the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, MI. Her work has been exhibited in the US and abroad, published in Journal...ment and Bad at Sports, and is included in the Joseph Labadie Collection at the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor). She has been an Artist-in-Residence at ACRE Projects (Steuben, WI), and Vermont Studio Center (Johnson, VT), and was awarded a 2014 Education Fellowship at The Wassaic Project and Artist Residency (Wassaic, NY).
