Artist Bio

Tony Oursler

Tony Oursler (b. 1957, New York) received a BFA from the California Institute of the Arts in 1979.  Oursler is primarily known for his innovative combination of video, sculpture, and performance, which explores the relationship between the individual and mass media systems with humor, irony, and imagination.

 

Oursler’s extensive exhibition history includes the acclaimed 2004 exhibition Disparities and Deformations: Our Grotesque, SITE Santa Fe, curated by Robert Storr; the retrospective exhibition Dispositifs, which traveled from the Jeu de Paume, Paris, to the DA2 Domus Atrium, Salamanca, and the Kunstforeningen, Copenhagen, in 2005; and recent solo exhibitions at Artsonje Center, Seoul (2012); ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum Denmark (2012); Pinchuk Art Center, Kiev, Ukraine (2013); and The Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2014).  In the summer of 2015, the artist will also have a solo presentation at LUMA Foundation, Arles, France.

 

Oursler’s work is represented in numerous public and private collections, including the Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh; Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Paris; Eli Broad Family Foundation, Los Angeles; Goetz Collection, Munich; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Milwaukee Art Museum, Wisconsin; Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Texas; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; Saatchi Collection, London; Tate Modern, London; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. The artist lives and works in New York.
