Author Juan Obando

Juan Obando is a Colombian artist living and working between Bogotá and Boston, where he works also as faculty for the Studio for Interrelated Media at MassArt. His work focuses on the critical intervention of social circuits through the orchestration of temporary situations. These experiments are often directed towards the production of video-performances, video installations and experimental publications —using social phenomena as raw material and humor as a catalyst for highlighting systemic ironies and contradictions. His recent exhibitions include Jeep VIP (solo), Volta Art Fair, New York, NY; Museum Mixtape (solo), Reverse Art Space, Brooklyn, NY; Selections, Bakalar and Paine Galleries, Boston, MA; and The Champions (solo), El Parqueadero, Banco de la República, Bogotá 2015.
