Born 1960 in New York, New York; lives in New York.
Coco Fusco is an interdisciplinary artist, writer, and curator whose practice includes video, performance, and lectures. Born to Cuban and Italian parents, she often explores the dialogue between identity, globalization, technology, gender, and race. In the quasi-documentary film a/k/a Mrs. George Gilbert (2004), she navigates the racial politics dictating the FBI’s intense 1970 hunt for African-American activist Angela Davis. Fusco focused on the subtleties of hierarchy and power as co-curator of Only Skin Deep: Changing Visions of the American Self, a photography exhibition organized by New York’s International Center of Photography in 2003 illustrating how images construct and perpetuate racialized vision.
