Gary Setzer’s transdisciplinary practice incorporates performance art, video art, sound, and installation. Enlisting familiar landmarks like the body, the landscape, minimalism, and humor as entry points, Setzer lures his audience into his conceptual framework—a theoretical space centered on our compulsory entanglements with language.

Setzer's artwork has been included in solo and group exhibitions nationally and internationally. He has performed, exhibited, and screened work in venues such as the Wexner Center for the Arts, the Today Art Museum in Beijing, Tribeca Film Center, Los Angeles Center for Digital Art, Museum of Contemporary Art Tucson, Mobile Museum of Art, Boston Center for the Arts, Tucson Museum of Art, and the Cincinnati Art Museum. In 2012, Setzer released the soundtrack for his performance, Supralingual/Sublingual: The Tongue is the Terrain, on the independent label Pretend Records. In recognition of his outstanding performance in research and teaching, Setzer was awarded the Louise Foucar Marshall endowed professorship from 2010 until 2015. He currently lives and works in Tucson where he is an Associate Professor of Art at the University of Arizona. He designed and leads the School of Art’s forward-thinking First Year Experience Division.
