Yoshua Okón

  • Yoshua Okón’s video installations are built on improvisational narratives created by the artist and his collaborators—performers willing to participate in a game of social chance that may easily spiral out of control. These works provoke viewers to consider questions of social conduct and personal behavior within the context of the authoritative nation-state. Okón places pressure on viewers to question their own attitudes towards power, ethics, and prejudice vis-á-vis class, status, and marginality.
