Kota Ezawa

Graduate Visiting Artist Lecture Series 2012

The MFA in Visual Studies welcomes animator Kota Ezawa to PNCA as part of the 2011-2012 Graduate Visiting Artist Lecture Series.
Kota Ezawa meticulously recreates seminal moments in media history, transforming them into vector-based animations reminiscent of classic cartoons. The resulting imagery, an intriguing facsimile of the source material, lies somewhere between Andy Warhol and South Park and is then represented in a number of formats including video, film, slide projection, lightbox, etching and collage. Ezawa forces us to acknowledge the historic and cultural distance between us and the depicted figures that feature so prominently in America’s public memory.
