Biography: 

Jason Lujan is originally from Marfa, Texas. He brings the experience of a 20 year career as an arts administrator in New York City managing departments with the Dia Foundation, Museum of Modern Art, Frick Museum, Park Avenue Armory, and Metropolitan Museum of Art. As well as assisting with runway fashion installations for Chanel, Marc Jacobs, Y3, and Rihanna x Puma, he has contributed to, planned, constructed, and managed productions and exhibitions by Ryoji Ikeda, Royal Shakespeare Company, Tom Sachs, Merce Cunningham, Janet Cardiff, Ann Hamilton, Paul McCarthy, Marina Abramovic, Douglas Gordon, Martin Creed, Taryn Simon, Herzog & DeMueron, Ai Wei We, The Met’s Costume Institute Ball, Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Church, Art of Native America: The Charles and Valerie Diker Collection, and others.

Jason is a practicing artist, whose current work is about cultural leveling; the process by which different cultures approach each other as a result of travel and communication and can also refer to the process by which culture is exported and diffused into other nations and communities, and later homogenized. Largely utilizing cultural, commercial, and political design rooted in Asia and North America, the work focuses on the exchange of ideas, meanings, and values, and questioning the concepts of authorship and authenticity.
