Studio Lecture Series: Yoshua Okón

Yoshua Okón gives an overview of his art production from the past 15 years with special emphasis on recent works.  Okón's work, like a series of near-sociological experiments executed for the camera, blends staged situations, documentation and improvisation, and questions habitual perceptions of reality and truth, selfhood and morality.
Yoshua Okón's work is included in the collections of Tate Modern, Centre Pompidou, Hammer Museum, LACMA, Colección Jumex and MUAC, among others.  His solo exhibitions include: Piovra, Kaufmann Repetto, Milan; Poulpe, Mor Charpentier, Paris; Octopus, Cornerhouse, Manchester and Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; and SUBTITLED, Städtische Kunsthalle, Munich.  He has also exhibited extensively in group shows in the US and abroad.  Okón received an MFA from UCLA with a Fulbright scholarship in 2002, and he currently resides in Mexico City.
