ABOUT ALEX DA CORTE
Alex Da Corte’s videos, installations, sculptures, performances, and collaborations recontextualize pop culture and consumerism. With luscious aesthetics born out of a sophisticated understanding of art history, color, and form, his rich tableaus are grounded in complex human emotions and experiences. Da Corte’s work is imbued with a sincere and kind curiosity about contemporary life and its often constricting and absurd realities.
Alex Da Corte is a Venezuelan-American artist based in Philadelphia. He has been the subject of survey exhibitions in 2022–2023 at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebæk, Denmark and the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, Japan, following the 2018 Carnegie International, the 2019 Biennale di Venezia, and the 2021 Roof Garden Commission at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. His collaborations with other celebrated artists and brands include a GAP video with Dev Hynes (Blood Orange) and the Prada Galleria handbag with the actress Scarlett Johansson. Alex has written an essay for the Marisol: A Retrospective, the 2023–2025 traveling exhibition of the Venezuelan artist organized by the Buffalo AKG Museum, and in 2026, with the Whitney Museum’s Meg Onli and Scott Rothkopf, will co-curate the first Roy Lichtenstein retrospective in New York in more than 30 years. Da Corte was the 2023 Philip Guston Rome Prize Fellow at the American Academy in Rome.
