Seth Bogart

Seth Bogart is known for creating ceramic book sculptures, to-scale and oversized reproductions of both cult finds and volumes by literary icons, including Joan Didion, Gary Indiana and Susan Sontag. Emerging out of the queer punk scene in the Bay Area in the late 1990s, the artist’s practice encompasses music, ceramics, painting, performance and clothing design. Bogart has established himself as a strong voice in the presentation and preservation of the historical arcana of queer culture—while exploring an aesthetic that embraces camp, beauty, poignancy and excess in equal measure.
