Opening: september 23rd 6 PM
Exhibition: september 24th to december 11th 2021
Eamon Ore-Giron blends a wide-range of visual styles and influences in his brightly colored abstract geometric paintings. The exhibition at Espace Muraille is the artist’s first show in continental Europe. It will present eighteen newly produced paintings of different scales from the artist’s ongoing Infinite Regress series as well as two loom-woven tapestries created in collaboration with the Taller Mexicano de Gobelinos in Guadalajara, Mexico. The exhibition at Espace Muraille is an opportunity to investigate Ore-Giron’s visual practice, in which the historic and visual legacies of the Global South meet and converge with North American and European modernist traditions, and suggest its relationship to music and sound.
Curator: Dr. Valentina Locatelli
Eamon Ore-Giron (born 1973, Tucson, USA, lives and works in Los Angeles, USA) blends a wide-range of visual styles and influences in his brightly colored abstract geometric paintings. Referencing indigenous and craft traditions, such as Native American medicine wheels and Amazonian tapestries, as well as 20th-century Western 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 City and Los Angeles. Ore-Giron received a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and an MFA from the University of California, Los Angeles.
