ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Eamon Ore-Giron blends a wide range of visual styles and influences in his brightly colored abstract geometric paintings. Referencing indigenous and craft traditions as well as 20th-century avant-gardes, his paintings move between temporalities and resonate across cultural contexts. Ore-Giron also works in video and music, and his interdisciplinary projects explore the interrelationship of sound, color, rhythm, and pattern, and make manifest a history of transnational exchange. He has exhibited nationally and internationally, as a solo practitioner and as part of collaborative endeavors, and has been selected to realize major public commissions in New York and Los Angeles. Ore-Giron received a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and an MFA from the University of California, Los Angeles.
Julio César Morales is an artist, educator, writer, and senior curator at the Arizona State University Art Museum. His own artwork explores labor, migration, and underground economies, and has been shown at the Lyon Biennale, the Istanbul Biennale, the Singapore Biennale, Perez Art Museum Miami, and SFMOMA among others. The recipient of a 2020 Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters & Sculptors Grant, his art is included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, Deutsche Bank Art Collection, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Kadist Foundation, and others.
Miranda Lash is the Ellen Bruss Senior Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver. Lash has organized a wide range of exhibitions including Jason Moran: Bathing the Room with Blues; Keltie Ferris: *O*P*E*N*; BRUCE CONNER: FOREVER AND EVER (co-curated with Dean Otto); the retrospective Mel Chin: Rematch; Rashaad Newsome: King of Arms; and Swoon: Thalassa. In 2017 Lash and Trevor Schoonmaker co-organized the acclaimed exhibition Southern Accent: Seeking the American South in Contemporary Art. From 2008 to 2014 Lash was the founding curator of modern and contemporary art at the New Orleans Museum of Art. Lash currently serves as Vice President on the board of the Joan Mitchell Foundation. She has been a Clark Fellow at the Clark Art Institute, a panelist for the National Endowment for the Arts, and a member of the curatorial advisory council for the international triennial Prospect New Orleans.
