Miles and Katharine Culbertson Prentice Distinguished Lecture: Yoshua Okón

Mexican artist Yoshua Okón’s videos blur the lines between documentary, reality, and fiction. He collaborates closely with his actors (often amateurs) to create sociological examinations that ask viewers to contemplate uncomfortable situations and circumstances. In this talk, he focused on a select group of works produced over the last twenty years including Oracle, exhibited at Colby, and Octopus, a piece made in Los Angeles in 2011.
