Ethan Shoshan is a social ecologist, who also engages in aesthetic philosophical visual inquiries, highlighting the importance of everyday gestures. For the last 2 years, Shoshan has been working with personal archives, relationships of the collection to community consciousness, personal identity and cultural understanding to help develop and preserve experiences within queer identity. He has collaborated with Carlo Quispe and other artists; exhibited and performed on the streets and at the Kitchen, Aljira, PØST, Envoy Enterprises, Commonwealth & Council, Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance, Le Petit Versailles, and other venues. His previous projects have been reviewed in The New York Times, Art In America, LA Weekly, Huffington Post, BlackBook, Art Quips, The Brooklyn Rail, Artforum, and Washington Post, and have aired on Public Access TV. Shoshan’s projects bring back art, life, and experiences to something that is inherent in our human condition – the need to share and connect to the deeply personal, and in that a process of learning, exploring, archiving alternative histories that are experiential and heartfelt.
