Justin Watson, a farewell to images


Justin Watson (b. 1984) received his MFA from the University of Utah in Sculpture Intermedia (2016). Watson uses installation art as a platform for iconoclasm, appropriation, and systems design to investigate power and identity as transmitted through new media technologies. Watson has shown extensively throughout Salt Lake City, including Central Utah Art Center (CUAC) and upcoming solo/duo exhibitions at Bountiful Davis Art Center (BDAC), Finch Lane Gallery, and NOX Contemporary.
