Marc Tasman is an Intermedia artist who works in photography, video, performance, and networked media. His research focuses on social tools and their strengths to construct identity and produce narrative meaning, with a particular interest in that range between mediated and performed culture. He is currently a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Journalism, Advertising, and Media Studies and coordinates the Digital Arts and Culture Programs at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Through teaching and administration, Tasman encourages practices that forge connections to broader learning communities, empowering students to innovate with new media forms and creative enterprises.
Marc Tasman was awarded Mary L. Nohl Suitcase Export Fund for Visual Art Award to support his participation in Intérieur Trouvé, a solo exhibition at Galerie Remise in Saint-Hippolyte, Quebec. This work, from the Laurentian Internationale collection, is a series of documentary photographs that explores a family’s connection, over five generations, to the land.
