Geo Wyex is an artist and educator originally from NYC who works in music, performance, poetry and sound. His most recent record, ATM FM (2020), was released through Muck Studies Dept. – a constellational narrative framework and imaginary city agent that surveys the bottom of low-lying water areas, “looking for stars out of what stinks.” Muck Studies Dept. as a project is a Weltenshaaung, with many forms and formats. Inspired by aesthetics and methodologies of black Atlantic poetics, investigative journalism and storytelling theater, the project connects mud, water, gas, ass, rocks, coins, keys, extractive industry, and sensual expression of belonging to that flood. Wyex has presented work at MoMA PS1, New Museum, Stedelijk Museum, The Studio Museum in Harlem, Dutch National Opera, L’Arsenic, Joe’s Pub etc. He was a resident at the Rijksakademie in 2015-2016. Recent collaborators include A.K. Burns, Every Ocean Hughes, Colin Self, and Tourmaline. He is currently based in Rotterdam, NL, and lives next to the Maas River.
