The youngest artist to have a solo show at the Whitney Museum of American Art, Cory Arcangel creates artworks that cross a range of media, including social media and the Internet, video games, performance, music composition, sculpture, computer science and print.

Recently, he collaborated with The Andy Warhol Museum, Carnegie Mellon University, The Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry and the Carnegie Museum of Art, to recover and preserve art created by Andy Warhol on a circa 1985 Amiga computer. Watch a video describing this project. 

The Brooklyn-based, post-conceptual artist is represented by Team Gallery in New York. His work is in many collections, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York’s Bowery district.

Arcangel will give a public talk and slideshow on Monday, Oct. 13, at 7 p.m., in Mayer Auditorium. He will also work with students during his 2-day visit to Exeter, which is sponsored by the Michael Rockefeller ’56 Visiting Artist Fund.
