Artist and scholar, Ricardo Zulueta has written a book-length study of Ryan Trecartin’s artistic genealogy, evolving aesthetics, radical approach to digital and Internet culture, and impact on contemporary art, film, and media: "Queer Art Camp Superstar." The book, which will be published in April 2018 by State University of New York (SUNY) Press is a close study of Trecartin's most significant films in order to discern the artist’s artistic genealogy, evolving aesthetics, radical approach to digital and Internet culture, and impact on contemporary art, film, and media. Giving careful attention to Trecartin’s network of layered references to the grotesque and abject, carnivalesque and ludic, and camp imagery, Zulueta illustrates and explains how the artist takes on reality television, technology, fashion, consumption, and cyberspace.
