Jason Lujan will discuss his current MoCNA exhibition, Jason Lujan: Summer Burial and his art practice. Lujan is an interdisciplinary artist who has lived in New York City since 2001. Originally from Marfa, Texas, his exhibitions and performances include multiple solo and group exhibitions at the Kentler International Drawing Space, Longwood Gallery, St. Lawrence University, Wave Hill Glyndor Gallery, the Heard Museum and the National Museum of the American Indian, Smithsonian Institution. The collected works and ideas behind Summer Burial references Eastern visualities in order to comment on Native American allegories and contemporary realities. Utilizing themes such as portraiture, adaptations of pattern, and historical crossover, the artist appropriates such diverse elements as origami paper patterns, military toys and models, and product packaging. For the solo exhibition, Lujan continues his use of digital process hybridized with conventional media.
