Cory Arcangel (b. 1978, Buffalo, NY) is a composer, artist, and entrepreneur. After having lived in New York for 15 years, Arcangel recently moved to Stavanger, Norway where he lives and works by telecommuting to his studio in Brooklyn - which he still maintains. Since moving, he has worked on a dizzying array of seemingly un-related projects; for his contribution to the MUNCH Triennale, he created Hail Mary, 2022: a Twitter-bot programmed to generate an original score for the 49 bells located inside the twin towers of Oslo’s City Hall, the largest carillon in the Nordic Region; for the 2019 Sharjah Biennial, Arcangel created banners of “destroyed jeans” for the facade of the Sharjah Art Museum, as well as composed a new work for pipe organ - which was placed into the mix at the Radisson Blu Sharjah gym. In collaboration with Olia Lialina, he toured the two-person show, “Asymmetrical Response” which traveled to the Western Front (2016) in Vancouver, the Kitchen in New York (2017), and Art Projects Ibiza in Ibiza (2017); Under the auspices of Arcangel Surfware - a software and merchandise publishing company he founded - he published Tony Conrad's 200 plus hour long piano piece, Music and the Mind of the World in 2017, released a line of fidgit spinners, as well as opened a flagship store and gallery in Stavanger in 2018 - where he can be found working on Saturdays. His work is included in many public collections, including the MoMA in New York, the Tate in London, Berlin's Neue Nationalgalerie, and the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst in Zürich.
