Curator's Talk: Julio Morales on Undoing Time: Art and Histories of Incarceration

Julio Morales, senior curator at the Arizona State University Art Museum, who organized Undoing Time, offers insights into the work of twelve contemporary artists who aim to uncover untold stories and bring to light historical underpinnings, building a revelatory narrative of incarceration.

Morales is an artist, educator, writer, and founder and director of Queens Nails Annex, an artist-run project space in San Francisco. He has taught at the San Francisco Art Institute and the California College for the Arts, and he served as adjunct curator for visual arts at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. Morales has organized solo exhibitions for numerous artists, among them Pablo Helguera, Suzanne Lacy, and Superflex. His own artwork, exhibited internationally and held in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the LA County Museum of Art, explores labor, migration, and underground economies.
