Poetics and Paradox

Aziz + Cucher are recognized as pioneers in the field of post-photography and digital imaging. They have worked as a collaborative team since meeting as graduate students at SFAI in 1990. Most recently, their video, photography, performance, and animation works have addressed their personal relationship to the ongoing conflicts in the Middle East.

Their work has been widely exhibited internationally with exhibitions at the Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art, Israel; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid; The Photographers’ Gallery, London; and in the 1995 Venice Biennale. Their works are held in the permanent collections of many museums, including San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; MUSAC, Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Paris; and National Gallery of Australia, Canberra. A catalogue of their work, Aziz + Cucher: Some People, was published in 2012 by the Indianapolis Museum of Art in conjunction with Hatje Cantz, Germany.

Aziz + Cucher are guest faculty and artists in residency in SFAI’s Low-Residency Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Studio Art program.
