Gabe Flores is an artist/curator living in Portland, Oregon. His work often reflects on identity-based ideologies and personal narrative. Flores’ artistic practice is relationally based; he thinks of his projects as explorations in sociology and political theory. He was the curator/director of Place, a 4000 sqft installation-based gallery on the top floor of Pioneer Place Mall, which he co-founded with Gary Wiseman. Place ran from June 2010 to March 2014. Flores recently ended a two-year exhibition experiment, Surplus Space, co-founded with Tabitha Nikolai, which utilized each room of a small Northeast Portland house in partnership with a long-term homeowner.
