Ivan Lozano (b. Guadalajara, Mexico) is a visual artist, podcaster, and independent publisher. Their art work focuses on the liminal space created when immaterial digital images (mostly found online and mostly related to their identity as a queer Mexican immigrant) are materialized through physical processes, such as phototransfers on plastic tape, cyanotype prints, collage, etc.

Their podcast, Archives+Futures, collects interviews with artists with links to Chicago who identify as Latin(x/e). Their ad-hoc digital press, Image File Press, spotlights the work of artists who identify as queer, people of color, women, or disabled. Lozano also serves as Secretary on the board of directors for Roots & Culture Contemporary Art Center. Their work has been exhibited at the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art (Kansas City), The Leather Archives & Museum (Chicago), Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (Miami), Leslie-Lohman Museum for Gay and Lesbian Art (New York City), Bemis Center for Contemporary Art (Omaha), and the National Museum of Mexican Art (Chicago).
