    August 2011 Educators Showcase: Gary Setzer

    Gary Setzer is an interdisciplinary artist who currently lives and works in Tucson, where he is an Assistant Professor of Art and the First Year Experience Division Chair at the University of Arizona.  His performances, installations, objects, and videos have been exhibited and screened extensively.   Setzer has recently toured his new performance work, Supralingual/Sublingual: The Tongue is the Terrain, across the United States. With stops in New York, Brooklyn, Chicago, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Denver, New Orleans, and Austin (among others), he provided gallery audiences with what the Huffington Post called “a phenomenal hybrid of his own, integrating video, music and performance.” In 2008, Setzer's performance work, Simultaneous Repellents (Repressed Sentient, Oppressed Séance), debuted in London at the Slade School of Fine Art.  In May of 2010, Setzer received the Louise Foucar Marshall Professorship—a distinguished honorary title and award.  Setzer recently transformed the University of Arizona’s traditional Foundations program into a sophisticated initiation into contemporary professional studio practice.  In the new First Year Experience program, eight-week modular workshop courses replace semester-long studio courses. Undergraduates choose six of the eight workshops to fulfill First Year Experience program requirements.
