Ed Gomez received his BFA from Arizona State University in 1999 and his MFA from the Otis College of Art and Design in 2003. Mr. Gomez’s interdisciplinary art practice revolves around the questioning of exhibition practices, institutional framework and historical models of artistic production. He has exhibited both nationally and internationally and his practice includes abstract and representational painting, printmaking, graphic design, video and three dimensional work, as well as conceptual models of art making. Professor Gomez is also an accomplished curator and has organized and curated national, international and traveling art exhibitions. In 2006, he co-founded the MexiCali Biennial, a bi-national art and music program addressing the region of the US-Mexico border, for which he is currently a director and co-president. This project serves not only as a curatorial project but also a satirical statement to the abundance of biennials occurring around the globe and the impact they have on the art community.
