Congratulations to Eamon Ore-Giron on his participation in the 2024 Whitney Biennial. The exhibition, titled Even Better Than the Real Thing, will run from March 20 through August 11 at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. The biennial's eighty-first installment is organized by Chrissie Iles and Meg Onli, with Min Sun Jeon and Beatriz Cifuentes.
Ore-Giron will present paintings from his ongoing Talking Shit series, which embody 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 Quetzalcoatl, Coatlicue, Amaru, and Inti, among others, Ore-Giron explores our ongoing relationship with symbols of culture and the ways in which they come to hold ideas around individual and collective identities.
