PCA&D Artist Lecture: Irvin Morazan | Thursday, April 3

March 3, 2014

Irvin Morazan, a contemporary multidisciplinary artist, will be speaking about his work on Thursday, April 3 from 10:00-11:00 am in the PCA&D Atrium. Morazan was born in El Salvador and immigrated to New Jersey at a young age. In his statement on the PS1 / MoMa website, he shares that he intertwines pre-Columbian mythologies with contemporary issues that ascribe to abstract qualities of passage and traditions brought over by immigrants. He draws on the combination of these two cultures by merging them into humorous performances, photographs and videos that blur the boundaries of culture and stereotypes. Morazan's performances often include staged portraits of imaginary Mayan deities as well as  fantastical headdresses that mimic and distort pre-Columbian attire. Morazan notes that the value of history and theory and their relation to contemporary art is central to his process. Artist lectures are free and open to the public.
