Hernan Jourdan

Hernan Jourdan lives and works creating encounter opportunities: from musical spectacles, live performances, co-creative installations, and virtual interventions. In 2010 he set out to hitchhike South America and traveled along the Pacific West-Coast, a journey that eventually took him to the United States. “North By South” is a chronicle of this experience and an evolving document of his passage through the continent and the stories he found along the way. He is a grantee of the Ministry of Education of Japan, the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts (RISCA) and MassMoCa among others. He currently splits his time between the Rio de la Plata basin in South America and Providence, RI.
