Rory Fitzgerald Bledsoe is a conceptual artist (via text, sound, installation and performance) and independent curator. Their work focuses on intimacy, surveillance capitalism, archiving and digital labor in the post-smartphone age. Their newest conceptual work/curatorial practice is deeply invested in plant-centered research, queer eco-sexuality and eco-anxiety. They have shown/performed at various galleries/institutions including: FOMO Art Book Fair (UK), Boston Center for the Arts, Flux Factory and Distillery Gallery. Rory assistant-directed/assistant-curated contemporary gallery, T+H Gallery, during its tenure in Boston (2015-17) and then founded/directed Space One Two One (SOTO) from 2017 to 2019. SOTO served as a platform to elevate underrepresented Boston artists via solo-exhibitions in conversation with the domestic space. They moved to NYC for an artist/curatorial residency at Flux Factory in 2019. Rory currently lives and works in Pembroke, MA, and will begin their practice-based PhD in Media Studies at University of Colorado (Boulder) this coming Fall.
