About

Ore-Giron and Garcia will discuss the artist’s practice through a lens of abstraction and in relation to the history and symbolism of gold. The color gold features prominently in Ore-Giron’s ongoing series of Infinite Regress paintings, and the speakers will consider how we might decolonize and reevaluate this precious metal.

Register for the Event

Artist Eamon Ore-Giron has been awarded the 2020-2021 Presidential Residency for the Future of the Arts at the Anderson Collection and the Institute for Diversity in the Arts. Ore-Giron’s work draws on motifs from indigenous and craft traditions alongside aesthetics from the 20th-century avant-gardes. His large-scale paintings and use of geometric figures recall early Modernist movements, such as Suprematism and Futurism, and the Color Field painters of the New York School. An exhibition of Ore-Giron’s work will be presented at the Anderson Collection in spring 2021.

Edgar Garcia is a Neubauer Family Assistant Professor at the University of Chicago in the Department of English Language and Literature. His research interests include the fields of indigenous, Latinx, and Chicanx studies; American literature, poetry, and poetics; environmental criticism; theory of law; and the intersection of poetry and anthropology.
