Yoshua Okon at Colby

Thu. Apr 12 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

- Free

Visit Colby for Yoshua Okõn’s lecture.

Mexican artist Yoshua Okõn will discuss his video practice which blurs the lines between documentary, reality, and fiction. He collaborates closely with his actors( often amateurs who are also the subjects of the work) to create sociological examinations that ask viewers to contemplate uncomfortable situations and circumstances. In the talk, he will focus on a select group of works produced over the last twenty years including Oracle, now on view at Colby, and Octopus, a piece made in Los Angeles.

Artist talk begins at 5pm in Given Auditorium. Following is a public reception at 6pm in the William D. Adams Gallery.
