Geo Wyeth

Geo Wyeth is New York-born artist and educator working in the realms of music, performance, narrative sculpture and video. Their ongoing project “Muck Studies Dept.” melds black/American music and history, extractive industry survey, and techniques of investigative journalism to trouble the swampy waters of race and memory in the USA and Europe.

Wyeth has shown work at the New Museum, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, MoMA PS1, Dutch National Opera, Triangle France, Anthology Film Archives, The Kitchen and MoCA LA, as well as spaces in Rotterdam, Copenhagen, Mexico City, Boston and many more. They are co-founder of the queer social space Tender Center in Rotterdam and have composed music for Tourmaline-directed narrative shorts “Happy Birthday Marsha!” and “Mary of Ill Fame”, as well as numerous videos of other contemporary artists. Wyeth was in residence at Amsterdam’s Rijksakademie from 2015 to 2016, and currently teaches at the Dutch Art Institute (DAI) where they focus on embodied tactics of American performance, storytelling, and remembering.
