Noe Montes

Noe Montes is a photographer who lives and works in Los Angeles. The themes of his work are race, class, power, images and meaning. He has been commissioned to create work by many Los Angeles institutions and he has exhibited work in several galleries and museums.


Spectra showcases the work of CalArts’ Graphic Design class of 2013—design which represents a range of values along more than one continuum; from print to electronic media, personal work to collaborative efforts, the work displays a fluidity between concept-driven and formal solutions. Whereas a single spectrum describes a smooth path with infinite values in between, the geometry of many is flecked with intersections that are distinct points of reference. Spectra examines these nodes, suggesting threads that run through individual bodies of work as well as well as the work of the program as a whole. Featuring essays by Ian Lynam, Gail Swanlund and Lorraine Wild.
