Alex Tsocanos is an interdisciplinary artist and educator. She explores how story telling, pedagogical tools and access to resources affect one’s sense of well-being and self-determination. Often looking through the lens of gender, politics, and the American landscape, she uses a combination of photography, video, painting, sculpture, graphic design, fiber arts, and social engagement to highlight the constructed nature of our cultural narratives and our ability to reimagine them.
Tsocanos has been a lecturer and visiting artist at Rhode Island School of Design, 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). 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.
