His own work, which focuses on "issues of labor, memory, surveillance technologies and identity strategies" according to museum staff, has been shown around the world in museums, and biennales including the SFMOMA, UCLA Hammer Museum, The Rooseum Museum of Art, Istanbul Biennale, and the Singapore Biennale (to name a few). And he's received awards from Rockefeller Foundation, The Fleishhacker Foundation, and Levis Strauss Foundation.

"Curatorial practice and art education have always been an important part of my overall artistic practice," writes Morales in his curatorial statement, released by ASU Art Museum this afternoon. "I am particularly interested in art's unique ability to engage in a social context, which can imbue daily life with meaning and significance. An important aspect of that is creating opportunities to draw on new models of engagement with both schools and students."
