Adam Geczy

Real name: 

Geczy's art practice covers the following media/concerns: the non-literal, aesthetic expression of socio-political dissent; electro-acoustic/electronic and classical/traditional music and its relationship to art, with an emphasis on video; video installation; multimedia and mixed media installation that also involves technology; performance art and performance leading to installation; urbanism; racial vilification and its positive aesthetic translation within art; subjective subjugation; cross-cultural collaboration; and cultural engagement.

The theoretical/written work is engaged in areas of art criticism and cultural discourse. It is also focused on art theory as it relates to art practice: on questions surrounding the art–research debate. Music and literature in relation to the arts are also ideas that constantly arise. A recent preoccupation has been fashion theory in Orientalism and in art generally. He is editing, with A/Prof Vicki Karaminas (UTS), a major anthology of essays on the crossovers between art and fashion (Berg Publishers, Oxford and New York).
