Core Resident: Joseph Josue Mora

Joseph Josue Mora (b. Mexico, 1993) is a multidisciplinary artist and educator based in Chicago, IL. Currently his work is focused on the similarities of the United States’ and the art world’s bureaucracies to disenfranchise people of color. Mora has been awarded the Caxton Artists Book Grant and SAIC’s Student Government’s Idea Grant to help start the production of Undocumented Projects (co-organizer) Survival Kits. Currently he is exhibiting a collaboration piece in a group show, ‘Peeling Off the Grey’, at the National Museum of Mexican Art. He was also selected to exhibit in ‘One: Emerging Art’ at Cleve Carney Gallery.

As Core Resident exploring Immigration, Mora will continue a series of work that creates the atmosphere of how people of color feel in various situations of this country’s bureaucracies.  Through Mora’s Undocumented Project, he will continue merging his artistic practice while being a service to a community, allies or undocumented people.
