GEAN MORENO AND ERNESTO OROZA at Wharton + Espinosa, Los Angeles

by Andrea Magenheimer

Gean Moreno and Ernesto Oroza are both Miami cultural heavyweights, and in their work together are known for curating, writing and research-driven artistic practice.

The two have collaborated on several projects, harkening back to their first show together in 2008,Studio Scrap Stool. These stools, cut and reorganized 2×4” planks, were the beginning of a dialogue regarding materials and their concern with the standards of a “designed object,” and how that could be manipulated to produce meaning.

Transcending Narratives of Humanity- Selected works CINTAS Foundation

January 15 – May 31, 2013

Miami Dade College
Freedom Tower
600 Biscayne Blvd,
Miami, FL

The MDC Museum of Art + Design (MoAD) presentsTranscending Narratives of Humanity: Selected Works from the CINTAS Foundation Fellows Collection at its National Historic Landmark Freedom Tower. Free and open to the public.

Transcending Narratives of Humanity explores artists who use art as successful vehicles of narrative, presenting works that conjure the darkest corners of the subconscious, magical reconstructions of inanimate objects and mastery of form, while investigating the interrogation of our personal and cultural identity in modern society.

The minimal exhibition features just six works by CINTAS Foundation Fellows Ernesto de la Vega Pujol, Pablo Cano, Mario Petrirena, Juan Nickford, Ernesto Oroza and María Elena González. Curated by MDC MoAD Curatorial Assistant Natalie Pérez, this exhibition reflects the CINTAS Foundation’s vision and multidisciplinary approach to the contemporary artists it supports.

Ernesto Oroza: el espacio relacional de todas las cosas del mundo


Publicado el domingo, 09.11.11
Ernesto Oroza (La Habana, 1968) exhibe actualmente la muestra de videos y fotografías Enemigo provisional en Art@Work. En 1997 obtuvo la beca Guggenheim por su proyecto Arquitectura de la necesidad que indagaba en la reconfiguración ocurrida en el interior y exterior de los hábitats de La Habana. Tras graduarse de diseñador gráfico durante el Período Especial en la isla había enfrentado la imposibilidad material de producir obras sofisticadas y descubrió en cambio que existía un impresionante “período de diseño popular masivo”, según escribió el crítico y artista Gean Moreno, con quien ha creado obras colectivas explorando un similar tipo de práctica en el Little Haiti de Miami.
Viendo su oficio sobrepasado por un entorno en el que la gente trasformaba sus viviendas con inesperadas envolturas o modificaciones inusuales para resolver la escasez habitacional; y en el que también se fabricaban objetos con lo que había a mano, improvisando soluciones frente a la carencia, renunció a sus ideas académicas para absorber las prácticas de la estética y vida popular.

‘Home: Dream Home’ an edgy exhibit at Praxis



July 17, 2011

Nothing is quite what it seems in the exhibition Home: Dream Home, and yet everything is indeed exactly what it is.

A globe-shaped pendant lamp by Ernesto Oroza sparkles like glass. It’s actually layers — many layers — of Scotch tape, and at the same time, a fully functioning light fixture . (It’s called, whimsically enough, Little Havana Lampshade.)


Home: Dream Home, on view through Aug. 13 at Praxis International Art, is a showhouse like no other. Though it’s a gallery exhibition, you can touch, sit on or in the case of the “fur’’ rug — roll around on the art.

Gean Moreno and Ernesto Oroza on Generic Objects

By Gean Moreno and Ernesto Oroza

e-flux journal #18

By generic objects we don’t mean objects that affect a kind of generic quality—brilliantly commonsensical and ordinary objects that come from the rarefied space of the designer’s studio, and draw their value from that space. We mean really generic—milk crates, plastic buckets, shipping containers, wooden palettes, traffic barricades, decorative concrete blocks, urban trash cans and dumpsters, rubber tires, scaffolding, Scotch tape. It’s not that any of these aren’t designed, but rather that they are designed so incredibly well as to function with unparalleled efficiency within the systems of circulation for which they are intended.
