In conjunction with his exhibition 'Us As A Landscape, Recent Figures for the Film My Blue Suit' at Cooper Cole, Geoff McFetridge will be in conversation with Magdalyn Asimakis, our Director of Research, about his new work.
McFetridge’s paintings, prints, and drawings are visual maps of the artist’s ethos. Invested in the legibility of an image, McFetridge is interested in how images exist in-between or outside of language, and in turn how this encourages more open-minded approaches to cognition. His works connect poetry and form, and slip between interpretations to connote the interconnectedness of people in public spaces.
Geoff McFetridge (b. 1971, Calgary, Alberta, Canada) received his BFA from the Alberta College of Art and Design and his MFA from the California Institute of the Arts. McFetridge was part of the infamous Beautiful Losers exhibition which debuted in downtown New York in 1991 and went on to tour the world.

McFetridge has also been included in museum exhibitions at the Vancouver Art Gallery, the Santa Monica Museum of Art, the Walker Art Center, the Yale University Art Museum, and The Geffen Contemporary at MoCA Los Angeles. McFetridge currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California, USA.
