Logan Hamilton Acton (b. 1987) is an interdisciplinary artist and creative professional currently working in Dallas, Texas. Acton earned his BA in Art & Performance and his MA in Aesthetic Studies from the University of Texas at Dallas, going on to study at the Kansas City Art Institute and complete his MFA in Sculpture at Cranbrook Academy of Art.
His past immersion in underground music fostered an interest in its theatricality and the aesthetics of unrest. Combining sculptural installation with video, animation and performance, Acton’s art practice bridges cultures and geographies, pairing mythic figures with extreme music and communities of resistance.
Through his experience teaching in the rigorous mentor-based Foundation program at the Kansas City Art Institute he has led instruction across wide-ranging subjects including Perception, Visual Forces, Spatiality, and Temporality. Acton is one half of the art collective the ARGOT/NOTS and formerly a co-director / co-curator with the artist-run gallery plug.
