Political artists featured in lecture series

November 24, 2010

Camilo Ontiveros

Two political artists who use their work to address issues ranging from globalization to human rights will give a combined lecture at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 1, in Moulton Hall, 212. The lecture by Michelle Dizon and Camilo Ontiveros is part of the Department of Art’s Visual Arts Speaker Series.

Dizon is an artist, filmmaker, and writer. Her work focuses on questions of post-colonialism, globalization, migration, social movements, human rights, and historical memory. Integrating essayistic documentary practices with the projected image installation, Dizon arrives at a form in dialogue with the legacies of political art and cinemas.

Michelle Dizon

Ontiveros is an artist whose work moves between multiple mediums–installation, sculpture, video, photography, sound, text, and intervention– in an ongoing exploration of the questions of migration, value, and political economy as they intersect with US-Mexico relations.

The event is free and open to the public.
