Logan Lecture: John Jota Leaños

John Jota Leaños uses new media to engage in diverse cultural arenas through what he calls "strategic revealing, tactical disruption, and symbolic wagon burning."

His practice includes a range of media arts—animation, film, public art, installation, and performance—that focuses on the convergence of the politics of history, memory, social space, and decolonization. Leaños’ digital animation Destinies Manifest is featured in Mi Tierra: Contemporary Artists Explore Place.

A Guggenheim Fellow, Leaños’ animations have been featured at the Whitney Biennial and numerous film festivals.

Doors open at 5:30 pm.
