Artist Blog: Evan Roth

Evan Roth is an American artist based in Paris whose practice visualizes and archives culture through unintended uses of technologies.

Roth’s work is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art NYC and has been exhibited at various institutions, including the Centre Pompidou, the Kunsthalle Wien, the Tate and the front page of Youtube. He has received numerous awards, including the Golden Nica from Prix Ars Electronica, Rhizome/The New Museum commissions and the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award.
