Seth Curcio is the Associate Director for Pier 24 Photography in San Francisco. He previously served as the Director and Curator for Redux Contemporary Art Center in Charleston, South Carolina, as well as founder and Editor in Chief of the online contemporary arts publication DailyServing. Curcio has written widely on contemporary art and photography for various publications, and regularly lectures and conducts studio visits at colleges and universities across the country.
Seth is also an artist whose work explores the role of images in the construction of knowledge and experience. Often appropriating photographs that illustrate a place, object or experience that is witnessed primarily through media outlets, his work addresses the notion of human limitation and the unknown. Working through collage, photography, and sculpture, his projects co-opt and fracture existing imagery to underscore the distance between the viewer and the original source.
