Kurt Ralske‘s video installations and performances enact a dialogue with history: an exploration of the past that proposes a new view of the future. His work has been exhibited internationally, including at collateral events of the Venice Biennale in 2009, 2015, 2017, 2019, and (as a member of video improvisational ensemble 242.pilots) at the Guggenheim Bilbao, the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, Montreal Museum of Contemporary Art, and Malmo Konsthalle.

Kurt is the recipient of a Rockefeller Foundation Media Arts Fellowship, and received First Prize at the Transmediale International Media Art Festival in Berlin. Kurt programmed and co-designed the 9-channel video installation that resided in the lobby of the MoMA in NYC from 2004 to 2015. He is also the author/programmer of Auvi, a popular video software environment in use by artists in 22 countries.

Kurt resides in New York City. He is a Professor of the Practice in Digital Media at Tufts University’s School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

Alongside his art practice, Kurt is active as an improvising musician and composer.
