Employing a range of visual strategies, Julio César Morales explores issues of
migration, underground economies, and labor, on personal and global scales. From
a series of indelible watercolors diagramming human trafficking to the historical
reenactment of a famous meal, his work engages complexities of social interactions
and political perspectives. Morales was the founder/director and co-curator of
Queens Nails, an artist-run project space in San Francisco, and is currently the
curator of visual arts at Arizona State University Art Museum.
