Duke and Battersby
Visiting Artist Lecture hosted by the Graduate Student Art Club at The Ohio State University Thursday, April 7th – 7pm University Hall Room 014
Emily Vey Duke and Cooper Battersby are artists working in video and installation. Their work has shown widely at minor institutions around the world, sometimes in very big, important cities. It has been included in huge group shows at major institutions, also sometimes in big important cities, but in many small cities too. They understand themselves as part of a huge sweep of cultural production that occasionally creates superstars, but also grinds out cultural history. They dedicate their tiny efforts to the production of a history that is interesting and just.
Cooper Battersby received his diploma in computer programming at Okanagan College, and completed his Masters of Fine Art at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
Emily Vey Duke received her degree in Intermedia from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in 1998, and completed her Masters of Fine Art at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
They are both tenured faculty in the Transmedia Department at Syracuse University in Central New York. They live on the unceded of the Onondaga and Mi’kmaq territories.
