José Andrés Mora | Media Lab Manager and Post Coordinator

José Andrés Mora (he/him) is a Venezuelan-born artist living in Canada. Mora graduated from the Nova Scotia College of Arts and Design (2013, BFA in Interdisciplinary Arts) and the University of Guelph (2020, MFA in Studio Arts). Mora’s work elicits a sense of disconnect deeply tied to his experience as a member of the Venezuelan diaspora. Mora excises written narrative fragments from personal experience, grafting the textual content to digital and physical surfaces and disconnecting the fragment’s narrative voice from context. He describes this untethered state of his written language as one analogous to his relationship to home and culture. Mora has exhibited across Canada since 2013 in notable galleries and public programs such as Nuit Blanche (2014), Birch Contemporary (2019), Trinity Square Video (2020), Dalhousie Art Gallery (2020), Artspace Peterborough (2022), Art Metropole (2022), the Digital Arts Resource Centre (2022), and The Plumb Gallery (2022). Mora is scheduled for upcoming solo exhibition shows at Maison de la Culture (Montréal, 2023) and Hamilton Artists Inc. (Hamilton, 2025).
