Cory Arcangel

Cory Arcangel is an artist who works in a variety of different mediums, including drawing, print, video, performance, and video game modifications. Often using appropriation, he creatively re-uses existing physical and digital materials to create works that oftentimes explore the relationship between technology and culture. Best known for his interest in video games and his highly digital aesthetic, Arcangel established himself through his work manipulating classic video games, altering their programming to distill fragments of their iconic imagery. Interested more generally in pop culture and pop culture nostalgia, Arcangel has taken as his subject other new media forms, including YouTube and blogs, using them to create works that explore their role in our cultural landscape.

Arcangel has been the subject of solo exhibitions at a number of notable institutions including the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Barbican in London,  and Hamburger Bahnhof Museum fur Gegenwart in Berlin.
