Tristan Espinoza’s Index, Interiors, presents the site-specific, web-based artwork, perennial, a project archiving the artist’s personal and cultural histories associated with Southern California’s ubiquitous citrus heritage.

Tristan Espinoza [b. 1995, Tamuning, Guam (he/they)] has exhibited internationally and in the US, in places such as the Archer Beach Haus, Chicago, IL; the Sullivan Galleries, Chicago, IL; Supplyframe DesignLab, Pasadena, CA; 187 Augusta, Medford, NY; and Human Resources, Los Angeles, CA. Espinoza is a current MFA candidate at the University of California, Los Angeles’ Design Media Arts program and holds a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
