PERRY HOBERMAN
Perry Hoberman is a media, installation and performance artist whose work has been presented widely throughout the United States and Europe. Hoberman works with a variety of technologies, ranging from the utterly obsolete to the seasonably state-of-the-art. He has worked with stereoscopic media for several decades, beginning in the early 1980s with his award-winning 3D slide performances and installations, including Out of the Picture (included in the 1985 Whitney Biennial) and Smaller Than Life, performed worldwide throughout the 1980s. His 3D installation Bar Code Hotel received the top prize at the Interactive Media Festival (Los Angeles, 1995). Timetable was awarded the Grand Prix at the ICC Biennale '99 in Tokyo, and Systems Maintenance won a 1999 Prix Ars Electronica Award of Distinction. Unexpected Obstacles, a retrospective survey of his work, was exhibited in 1998 at the ZKM Mediamuseum in Karlsruhe, Germany. In 2002 he was both a Guggenheim Foundation Fellow and a Rockefeller Media Arts Fellow. Last year, Hoberman presented Denial Clinic, a performance with songs and 3D projection in Los Angeles and Vancouver. Hoberman is represented by Postmasters Gallery in New York, where he has had numerous one-person exhibitions. He has taught at the Cooper Union School of Art, the San Francisco Art Institute, the California Institute of the Arts and the School of Visual Arts. Currently, Hoberman is an Associate Research Professor in the Interactive Media Division at the University of Southern California School of Cinema-Television, where he heads S3D@USC, the Center for Stereoscopic 3D at the USC School for Cinematic Arts.
