Jennifer and Kevin McCoy

Jennifer and Kevin McCoy are media artists whose works extends from the moving image and software to drawing, painting, and installation. Their projects often seek to situate new technologies within our culture, using contemporary tools and questioning their impact both on the individual and on the social sphere. Early projects include database sculptures of television clips filtered into categorical frameworks and diorama like miniature film sets activated by live cameras and software.  In their work, technology serves as a mediator between the human and the world, and as an active force which not only shapes its material but reframes the entire project of what we choose to see. Recent work refigures mid century images of the American west with collaged databases of AI generated landscape photography.

The McCoys' work has been widely exhibited in the US and internationally with exhibitions including the Pompidou Center in Paris, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the British Film Institute- Southbank in London, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The San Jose Museum of Art, The Addison Museum of American Art, The Sundance Film Festival, and many other venues in the US, Europe and Asia.Their work can be seen in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the Milwaukee Art Museum, the 21C Museum, and the Speed Museum. They received a Creative Capital award in 2003, the Wired Rave Award for Art in 2005, a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2011, and a Headlands Alumni Award in 2014. Their work is represented by Postmasters Gallery in New York. In 2022 Kevin received a Webby Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences for co-developing the technology that eventually became known as the NFT.
