Yoshua Okón. Colateral

Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo – MUAC

07 Oct 201711 Feb 2018

“Colateral” presents the video and multimedia work of Yoshua Okón, revolving around the social and political organization of groups active in a wide range of locations in North and South America, Europe and the Middle East. If Okón’s earlier work emphasized certain stagings of the self, the projects in the current exhibition open a key front onto international relations. The exhibition showcases Okón’s signature politics of infiltration in which disparate social formations and coteries—including “border protectors,” suburban real estate agents, or small town boosters—act out and reinvent their own routines, lacing them with fantasies and speculative delusion. Okón creates an almost uncanny space in which these actions may be satirical or parodic, but are also transporting and often unpredictably—and oddly, even “incorrectly”—hilarious.
