Lecture: Claudio Dicochea


Location: 200 Riley Hall of Art & Design / 2nd floor Photo Gallery

Painter and arts educator Claudio Dicochea will give a lecture in 200 Riley Hall of Art on January 30 at 7:00pm, with a reception in the adjacent Photo Gallery.


Claudio Dicochea is a painter and arts educator born in San Luis Río Colorado in Mexico. Raised on the Mexican–United States border in southern Arizona, Dicochea studied at the University of Arizona, San Francisco Art Institute, and Arizona State University.  Drawing from his own experience at the geographic intersection of Mexican and American culture, Dicochea’s work is a contemporary re-examination of mestizaje, or mixed-race identity. His layered and visually dense paintings host a motley cast of figures and motifs dealing with the legacy of colonial representation, hybrid identity and contemporary media stereotypes.
