Tosh Basco

Full CV (PDF)

Tosh Basco is a movement-based artist whose practice employs improvisation as a mode of survival and world-building. Her work explores the threshold where becoming meets representation. Through images and language, Basco shows how the movement of form communicates what remains impenetrable. Often these gestures are captured as paintings, photographs, or works on paper in order to immortalize the visceral experience of live visual performance.

Her performances have been presented in a variety of venues including museums, theaters, and nightclubs: amongst them are the Venice Biennale, the Sydney Biennial, the Whitney Museum of American Art, MoMA PS1, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, MOCA Los Angeles, the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, ICA London, and Berghain. Tosh Basco has toured with Mykki Blanco, and collaborated with Korakrit Arunanondchai, Hood by Air, and Wu Tsang, who she joined to continue the collaboration as Moved by the Motion at Schauspielhaus in Zürich.
