Avatar, artist, curator
LaTurbo Avedon is an avatar and artist, creating work that emphasizes the practice of non-physical identity and authorship. Avedon has spent the past decade developing a body of work that illuminates the ever-growing intensity between users and the virtual, pursuing creative environments that deepen the meaning of immaterial experiences. They curate and design Panther Modern, a file-based exhibition space that encourages artists to create site-specific installations for the Internet.
LaTurbo’s process of character creation continues through gaming, performance and exhibitions. Their work has appeared internationally, including MAK – Museum of Applied Arts (Vienna), The Manchester International Festival UK, Transmediale (Berlin), Haus der elektronischen Künste (Basel), HMVK (Dortmund), Barbican Center (London), TRANSFER Gallery (New York), Galeries Lafayette (Paris), and The Whitney Museum (New York City).
