Assistant Professor of Contemporary Art Practice
Mev Luna is an interdisciplinary artist currently living and working in Chicago. Through a research-based practice and self-reflexive methodology, Mev’s practice rethinks history to identify the fictions that govern contemporary life and speculative futures. They work between live performance, video installation, new media, and text. Mev’s works have been exhibited in group exhibitions at Oficina de Arte, México City; PRIZM Art Fair, Miami; Threewalls, Chicago; and the Oliver Arts Center, Oakland. Mev’s time-based works have been presented at Artists' Television Access, San Francisco; MIX Queer Experimental Film Festival, New York, SFMOMA San Francisco; and Defibrillator Gallery, Chicago. Mev was a 2017 SOMA Summer participant in Mexico City and a research fellow at the Shapiro Center for Research and Collaboration. They are a 2018 Art Matters Foundation Fellowship recipient, and a current 2018-2019 BOLT resident at the Chicago Artist Coalition.
