Social Progress Through Contemporary Art
Jorge Rojas

Jorge Rojas is a multidisciplinary artist, curator and artist educator. He studied Art at the University of Utah and at Bellas Artes- El Nigromante in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Rojas employs both traditional and new media, as well as performative elements to investigate communication systems and the effect of technology on artistic production, social structures and communities. By examining the relationships between artist, viewer, and artwork, he explores how we communicate, how we perceive one another, and why we adopt and play out certain roles within our societies. 

Rojas has exhibited in galleries and museums across Mexico, the United States and India including Queens Museum of Art, New York; New World Museum, Houston; Ex Convento del Carmen, Guadalajara, Mexico; White Box, New York; Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions - LACE, Los Angeles; Diaspora Vibe Gallery, Miami; and West Chicago City Museum, Illinois. His work is included in numerous private and public collections including The Mexican Museum in San Francisco and Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach, CA. Rojas lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. He was born in Morelos, Mexico.
