Raven Chacon

Lightning Speak

October 14, 2017 - January 7, 2018

Raven Chacon is a composer of chamber music, a performer of experimental noise music, an educator, and an installation artist. His exhibition Lightning Speak features both solo and collaborative work. Originally from the Navajo Nation, he is also a member of the Indigenous art collective Postcommodity, a team of conceptually-driven artists who challenge limiting and market-driven notions of Native American Art. Chacon’s diverse practice, which ranges from sculptural sound installations, to site-specific performance and collaborative projects, resists pigeonholing of art, music and social experience into distinct categories. Raven Chacon is the first Mellon Foundation Artist in Residence for the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College.

Please be advised that artwork in this exhibition contains images and sounds of firearms.
