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 Arsenale in Venice, The Today Art Museum in Beijing, Tribeca Film Center, The National Art Center Tokyo, Los Angeles Center for Digital Art, Museum of Contemporary Art Tucson, Ars Electronica, Mobile Museum of Art, The Wexner Center for the Arts, 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.

Proud of you, Taylor Maresca!Taylor Maresca (BFA, '22) is the new morning reporter for WBTW News13 CBS in Myrtle Beach! This past semester Maresca earned her BFA in Musical Theatre, a BA in Communications, and double minored in Public Relations and Journalism. During her time at UArizona she worked for UATV 3 News, wrote for Arizona Daily Wildcat and wrote as a staff writer for Arizona Arts - among many other roles on and off campus.

“Being a journalist, like being an artist, is so fulfilling because everyday I get to tell stories. Stories that impact communities and inspire change." says Maresca. "I’m loving every second of being the morning reporter at News13 and connecting with the lovely community of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina (even though it comes with a 2:30 a.m. wake up time 😉)."

Congratulations, Taylor! Bear Down!
