Tzu-an Ko is Concerned about popular culture and the conflict between personal identities and social values. She invites audiences to contemplate with different perspectives, to think about the relationships between people and the robots of existential labor.
Lee Tusman presents projects that straddle the intersection of ideas that are socially-based, urban in nature and that combine unconventional practices with contemporary visual arts and internet media. Tusman has curated dozens of exhibitions and public projects for a diverse group of universities, galleries, institutions, alternative spaces and public interventions including UCLA; California State University, Northridge; University of California, Riverside; Riverside Art Museum; Little Berlin; the Delaware Center for Contemporary Arts; Space 1026; Ontario College of Art and Design; and others.
Outside of institutions, Tusman curates and produces projects in non-traditional spaces including abandoned buildings, vehicles, gas stations, and elevators. Recent projects include: Creative Director and Curator of the citywide Hidden City Philadelphia Festival; Artist and Creative Director of a temporary radio station of slow experimental music for Pew Center for Arts and Heritage research group New Spaces / New Formats; Curator of an exhibition of bot-designed artwork, Heavily Scripted, for Little Berlin; Creative Director of the new Unknown Territory artist-in-residency for artists working with technology at The Hacktory in Philadelphia.
