Alex Da Corte (b.1981) lives and works in Philadelphia, PA. He received an MFA in Sculpture from Yale University and a BFA in Printmaking from University of the Arts. Da Corte's sculptures are compositions of found and altered objects that are handled with a lurid sensibility akin to a horror-movie. His installations evolve out of an interest in material culture and personal exchanges. He has shown widely in the US and abroad, most recently in the ICA Philadelphia, as part of “How We Escaped: Reflections on Warhol.” His work has also been shown at the Museum of Modern Art, PS1 MoMA, TEAM Gallery, Nicole Klagsbrun Gallery, and Yvon Lambert Gallery in New York, Or Gallery in Vancouver, the Contemporary Art Museum in St. Louis, Fleisher Ollman Gallery in Philadelphia, The Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, and Galerie Olivier Robert in Paris.
