The exhibition was organized by a six-person curatorial team and is on view through October 8.
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 the MCA Denver, LAXART, Los Angeles, the 18th Street Arts Center in Los Angeles, and at PAFA.
