James Cohan presents an exhibition of new paintings, textiles, and ceramic murals by Eamon Ore-Giron. This is Ore-Giron’s second solo exhibition with the gallery.

Known for his cross-cultural practice, which includes painting, music, and video, Ore-Giron returns to and expands upon his Talking Shit series, a body of work he began in 2017 while living in Guadalajara, Mexico. The paintings, textiles, and ceramic tile works in this exhibition represent an imagined conversation between the artist and deities from Mexico and Peru’s ancestral past. With precisely rendered, vibrantly-colored, semi-abstract references to the gods Quetzalcóatl, Coatlicue, Amaru, and Inti, among others, Ore-Giron explores our ongoing relationship with symbols of culture, how these symbols speak across history as their meanings shift over time, and the ways in which such symbols come to hold ideas around individual and collective identities.
