Artist-in-Residence: Luis A. Sahagun

Wednesday, Nov. 20, 2019    7–8:30pm

Luis A. Sahagun is a Michigan State University - Art | Art History | Design Artist-in-Residence: Critical Race Studies. Sahagun’s drawings, sculptures, paintings, and performances confront the palpable inescapability of race and transforms art into an act of reclamation. As a previously undocumented immigrant and former laborer, Sahagun’s work focus on the importance of Latinx cultures and contributions in order to combat the anti-immigration and anti-Latinx national rhetoric that persists throughout the country.

Support for this lecture is provided by the MSU Federal Credit Union, MSU Broad, MSU College of Arts & Letters, and the MSU Department of Art, Art History, and Design.

Plan to arrive early to check out the galleries before this event! Our galleries close to the public at 7pm.
