ARTIST INFORMATIONBIO  

Armando Rascón

Born in Calexico, California, Armando Rascón's photography, videos, and installations are immersed in the contradictions of the US/Mexico border. Rascón’s images and media range from religious folk-icons to emblematic family portraits, from the ritual to the digital, from succinct post-modern representations to the baroque details of border iconographies. Rascón has participated in group- exhibitions in New York, San Diego, Los Angeles, Chicago, Paris, Cologne, Copenhagen, Stockholm and elsewhere. His solo work has included projects for INTAR Gallery in New York, the Los Angeles Center for Photographic Studies, Randolph Street Gallery in Chicago, the San Francisco Art Institute, the Blue Star Arts Space in San Antonio, and the Newark Art Museum in New Jersey. His work was the subject of a breakthrough joint exhibition at San Diego's Museum of Contemporary Art and Centro Cultural de la Raza. Rascón's art has been supported by grants from the California Arts Council, Lannan Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, US-Mexico Fund for Culture and the Rockefeller Foundation. He was the recipient of the prestigious Adeline Kent Award.
