Steve Wetzel is an American artist who teaches in the Department of Film/Video/Animation/New Genres at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
Much of Wetzel’s work focuses on social construction and the sacredness of events—their singularity in time and space. These themes can also be found in a little book he penned in 2010 (Occasional Performances and Wayward Writings) that was described by his editor as “an urgent and generous exegesis ...[a] re-collecting of thoughts and experience, a naming of bullshit.”
Some recent group shows, performances and screenings include the Angstrom Gallery, and the LA Filmforum in Los Angeles, CA; the Hyde Park Arts Center, and Rowley Kennerk Gallery in Chicago, IL; The Museum of Contemporary Art, Detroit, MI; CinemaSpace at the Segal Centre for Performing Arts, Montreal, Canada; and the Ann Arbor Film Festival where Steve won a Jury Award in 2010.
