Mapping Intersections: Identity, Place & The Body—Hour 2

Plascencia is a visual artist and educator whose creative work explores the constructive nature of identity, the conflict that individuals face building their identity and the duality--sometimes conflict--between domesticity and utilitarianism, personal and communal, and self and society. Plascencia attended the Escuale de Artes Plasticas in Saltillo, Mexico before immigrating to the USA. He holds an MFA in Photography and New Media from the University of Colorado-Boulder and a BFA in Photography from the University of Texas at Arlington. He is currently the Director of MFA Programs and an Associate Professor of Art at Memphis College of Art.
