Raven Chacon

Raven Chacon is a composer of chamber music, a performer of experimental noise music, an educator, and an installation artist. Originally from the Navajo Nation, he is also a member of the Indigenous art collective Postcommodity, a team of conceptually-driven artists who challenge limiting and market-driven notions of Native American Art. Chacon’s diverse practice, which ranges from sculptural sound installations, to site-specific performance and collaborative work with youth, resists pigeonholing of art, music and social experience into distinct categories. Raven Chacon is the first Mellon Foundation Artist in Residence for Colorado College and the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center.
