Aziz + Cucher, consisting of Anthony Aziz (b. 1961, Lunenburg, Massachusetts) and Sammy Cucher (b. 1958, Lima, Peru), are American artists working collaboratively since meeting in graduate school in 1990 at the San Francisco Art Institute. They are considered pioneers in the field of digital imaging and post-photography, with projects exhibited at numerous international venues. They are now members of the Fine Arts faculty at Parsons School of Design (New York) and are based in Brooklyn.
Their interdisciplinary practice includes video, photography, screen-printing, textiles, sculpture and digital animation. The images, objects and installations they produce 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 + Cucher have exhibited at the 46th Venice Biennale, MASS MoCA, the New Museum (New York), the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the List Visual Art Center at MIT (Cambridge, MA), the National Gallery of Berlin, and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia (Madrid), among others.
