Lecture by DeCarlo Logan
DeCarlo Logan creates work which uses an interdisciplinary approach combing and moving between painting, video, photography, printmaking, sculpture, and installation art. He dissects social constructions as a means to engage in a conversation deeply rooted in complex internal and external perceptions of race and ethnicity in America. His work captures moments which would otherwise be overlooked or forgotten; providing a space to discover community through shared experience. He investigates the factors which dominate bodies of color by confronting the established perception of Black and Brown communities; creating a dialog to examining dangerous social customs which perpetuate prejudice. Logan received his MFA in Studio Art from Purdue University and a BA from Illinois College. He is currently based near St. Louis, MO.
