José Esparza Chong Cuy Named Associate Curator at MCA Chicago

Curator and writer José Esparza Chong Cuy has been appointed the new Pamela Alper associate curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. He was most recently the associate curator at the Museo Jumex, where he cocurated the show “The Natural Order of Things,” 2016, and curated “The Permanent Revolution,” 2014, featuring art by Pedro Reyes.

“When I met José over a year ago on a tour at the Museo Jumex, I was immediately impressed by his poise and intellect,” says chief curator Michael Darling. “With our longstanding interest in art from Latin America, we now have in José an articulate advocate for presenting the best work being made in that region.”
