UCLA Department of Art Lectures: Yoshua Okón
Yoshua Okón was born in 1970, in Mexico City where he lives and works. In 1994 he founded La Panadería, an artist-run space in Mexico City. In 2002, he received an MFA from UCLA. His solo exhibitions include Ventanilla Única, Museo Carrillo Gil, Mexico City; SUBTITLED, Städtische Kunsthalle, Munich; and Bocanegra, the Project, New York. Okón is currently an artist-in-residence at the Hammer Museum.
Public programs are made possible, in part, by a major gift from Ann and Jerry Moss. Additional support is provided by Bronya and Andrew Galef, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, an anonymous donor, the Hammer Programs Committee, and Susan and Leonard Nimoy.
The Hammer Museum's Artist Residency Program was initiated with funding from the Nimoy Foundation and is supported through a significant grant from the James Irvine Foundation. Yoshua Okón’s residency also received support from the Department of Cultural Affairs, City of Los Angeles Cultural Exchange International Program.
The UCLA Department of Art’s visiting lecture series is made possible through the generous support of the William D. Feldman Family Endowed Art Lecture Fund.
