Cem A. is an artist and curator with a background in anthropology. He is known for running the art meme page @freeze_magazine. Since its inception in 2019, @freeze_magazine has become a tool for creative collaborations between Cem and fellow artists, researchers and organisations. His work explores topics such as survival and alienation in the art world, often through a hyper-reflexive lens. He is a member of Hœr NY, a feminist queer and bisexual lesbian art collective founded with Harley Aussoleil and Frances Breden in 2022.
