No. 534: Eamon Ore-Giron, Ray Johnson

Episode No. 534 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features artist Eamon Ore-Giron and curator Caitlin Haskell.

The Anderson Collection at Stanford University is presenting “Eamon Ore-Giron: Non Plus Ultra” through February 20. The exhibition features paintings Ore-Giron has made while on a Stanford residency, installed with works from the Anderson’s collection. It was curated by Eamon Ore-Giron and Jason Linetzky.

Next month, The Museum of Contemporary Art Denver opens a survey of Ore-Giron’s 20-year career titled “Eamon Ore-Giron: Competing with Lightning / Rivalizando con el relámpago.” The exhibition, which was curated by Miranda Lash, will be on view from February 16 to May 22.

Ore-Giron’s work joins histories, geographies and abstraction as a means by which to explore the layered past and present of the Americas. He’s been featured in solo shows and two-person shows at LAXART and the 18th Street Arts Center in Los Angeles, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and in group shows at SFMOMA, the Hammer Museum, Ballroom Marfa, and more.

Haskell discusses “Ray Johnson c/o,” which spotlight’s Johnson’s work from almost exclusively within the AIC’s recently acquired William S. Wilson Collection of Ray Johnson—the original archives of the international mail art network known as the New York Correspondence School (NYCS). It is on view through March 21. Haskell co-curated the show with Jordan Carter; the remarkable catalogue was designed by Irma Boom. It is available from Indiebound and Amazon from about $60.
