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.

May the Fourth Be With You.

No one captured the thrill of space exploration quite like artist Robert McCall, a major figure in the University of Arizona Museum of Art collection.

For more than 60 years, McCall chronicled the history of aviation, science and space flight and shared his vision with the world. His 35-year relationship with NASA gave Americans a view of its presence in space in ways never before imagined.

In addition to being a visual historian for NASA, McCall served as a conceptual artist for the entertainment industry. He painted the poster art for Stanley Kubrick's classic, "2001: A Space Odyssey."

He has been an inspiration to generations of astronomers, engineers, and astronauts and a model for young artists, designers and illustrators.

In 2007, McCall made the founding donation of 200 original paintings and drawings to UAMA, which helped establish UAMA’s Archive of Visual Arts.
