Visiting Artist, Ted Efremoff – 3/4/16

Ted Efremoff, assistant professor of art at Central Connecticut State University and a 2006 graduate of the UConn MFA Studio Art program, will discuss his artist work on March 4, 2016 at 12:00pm at the MFA Graduate Studios (VARC) on the Depot campus.

Efremoff born in Moscow, Russia, is a cross-disciplinary artist engaged with performance, video, installation and social practice. Spurred by his personal interest in social justice, he envisions collaborative activity as an instrument that builds critical relationships between people. His art explores the personal and cultural constraints ingrained within prevailing political, economic, and social power structures.

Efremoff has performed and exhibited nationally at Chashama performance spaces, Sideshow and PSII Galleries in New York City, The Museum of American Art in Philadelphia and the Benton and Mattatuck museums in Connecticut. Internationally his work has been seen at the Gongju National Museum in South Korea, The National Center of Contemporary Art in Moscow, Russia and The National Palace of Culture in Sofia, Bulgaria. His work is in the collections of the Sound Museum of Rome, The Los Angeles Center for Digital Arts and the Culture House of Bad Sobernheim, Germany.
