Opening, April 12, 2019
6pm- 10pm

Clearance is a solo exhibition featuring the work of Joseph Mora. Looking at the different ways of bureaucracies, infrastructures, and (in)accessibilities, Mora uses art handling materials and cues to mirror issues of immigration stemming from his experiences as an art handler, DACA recipient and person living the the U.S. Mora’s experimentations with material, installation and performances draws parallels between the art and political world. 

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.

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.

Clearance on view from April 12, 2019 to May 4, 2019
