The Art | Crime Archive Lecture Series Presents: Yoshua Okón
Thursday, April 20th
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
San Diego State University
Physics Building Room 145
Open to the Public


The artist Yoshua Okón was born in Mexico City in 1970 where he currently lives. His 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. Working with marginalized subcultures such as Nazi-war memorabilia collectors, corrupt law enforcement officers, and Guatemalan day laborers, Okón creates discomfiting situations that often antagonize the viewer’s sense of taste and propriety, while subtly revealing the problematics of global social and economic relations. His artist talk will focus on work from his 20-year career.

Panel Discussion: Shadow Spaces from The Art | Crime Archive

March 20, 2014

You are invited to a panel discussion designed to engage the campus community in a dialog about culture and criminality. Meet prison art scholar, Laura Pecenco and noted photographer, Stephen Chalmers. A discussion will ensue about two exhibitions currently on view:  The Prison Art Project: What does prisoner-made art look like—its themes, imagery, and materials? A goal of this exhibition is to generate an awareness of the pervasive myths of prison life – much of which has been perpetuated through popular entertainment – and offer another, more complex model of what it means to live behind bars. Interrogating Dump Sites:  Photographer Stephen Chalmers gained recognition with his photographs of ‘dump sites’—wild spaces where infamous serial killers disposed of their victims. What is the ethical dimension to this body of work? What does it say about how we consume the photographic image of murder?
