Overview

Alter Ego: A Decade of Work by Anthony Goicolea docu­ments the artist’s first retrospective exhibition, presenting nearly fifty compelling works of art representing the bold and varied scope of Goicolea’s career to date. Born in 1971 in Atlanta, Georgia, Anthony Goicolea is a first-generation Cuban American artist now working in Brooklyn, New York. Employing a variety of media, Goicolea explores themes ranging from personal history and identity, to alienation and displacement, to environmental destruction and globalization. His diverse oeuvre encompasses black-and-white and color photography, sculpture and video installations, and multi-layered drawings and paintings on Mylar. Goicolea’s ability to move with ease between traditional media, such as painting and drawing, to video and digital photography, has put him at the forefront of contemporary art.
