EFFORT ECONOMY

On view February 1 – May 5, 2019

Featuring Julie FavreauRaul GonzalezR. Eric McMasterRonny Quevedoand Anne Wallace.

Reflecting on dancer and theorist Rudolf Laban’s ideas related to effort and movement the exhibition features artists whose work utilizes choreography in some form. Movement and the body are essential to the works in the exhibition, with artists considering the design and sequencing of movement as it relates to dance, sports, daily life, eroticism, and more. Other ideas presented through this exhibition include internal rhythm and time as forces we connect our bodies to, and our drive for interconnectivity to one another in both the material and immaterial world.

Laban introduced the termeffortin the context of modern dance theory as a mental impulse where movement originates. He designated four factors of motion— space, weight, time and flow— that embody effort. The combination of these factors generates the dynamic of movement. Laban also defined basic actions relating to effort: to press, to flick, to wring, to dab, to slash, to glide, to punch and to float.

Using Laban’s theories as a foundation, this exhibition also considers the varied definitions of the terms effort and economy in combination with one another. We look at different contexts where our movements are calculated, sometimes the parameters fabricated or designed by the artists. Artists consider how the expenditure of energy can be optimized, futile, emotional, healing, sensual, mundane, and create new aesthetic languages. The works generate questions around the values we assign to the exerting effort, whether this be monetary, economic, social, or moral.

Ruby City presents Solo Show of Isaac Julien’s Film Looking For Langston

March 1 – August 11, 2019

Public Opening Reception: February 28, 2019, 6:30-8:30pm

Location: Studio, 111 Camp St. San Antonio, TX 78204

Ruby City presents an exhibition of works by renowned filmmaker and installation artist, Isaac Julien, CBE RA opening at Studio on February 28, 2019. Central to the exhibition is Julien’s seminal 1989 documentary-drama Looking for Langston, a film which expanded his international acclaim. Looking for Langston, one of Julien’s most recognized early works, is a meditation on the life of poet, novelist and playwright Langston Hughes alongside several of his contemporaries who were also integral members of the Harlem Renaissance. When it debuted, it was lauded for its exploration of desire and the reciprocity of the gaze, and marked a founding film of what critic B.Ruby Rich named The New Queer Cinema.

The film is regarded as a fundamental resource for African-American Studies and has been a key part of curricula in North American universities, colleges and art schools. 2019 marks it’s 30th anniversary.

Also on display are two recently acquired photographic works from the Looking for Langston series, Film-Noir Angels and Masquerade No. 3, which illuminate the multilayered narratives present throughout Julien’s oeuvre.

Julien’s film, video installation and photographic works combine a number of artistic genres to create a unique visual language. Much of Julien’s work explores issues of Black and queer identities. Addressing themes such as institutionalized racism, transcultural identity and experiences of cultural displacement, Julien’s work explores many of the social and economic issues facing contemporary global society.

During her lifetime, Linda Pace was a dedicated supporter of Julien’s practice, acquiring over fifty works for her permanent collection. Today, the Linda Pace Foundation preserves the largest collection of Julien’s work.

CAM 2019 Perennial Opening Exhibition “Ghostly Demarcations” Curator Kevin Burns @ Blue Star Contemporary
Mar 1 @ 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
CAM 2019 Perennial Opening Exhibition "Ghostly Demarcations" Curator Kevin Burns @ Blue Star Contemporary

In pursuit of its mission to raise the national profile of San Antonio contemporary art and artists, each year Contemporary Art Month selects a city to partner with to foster dialogue and opportunities beyond San Antonio. We invite a professional curator from the partnering city to visit San Antonio artists’ studios to choose artists to participate in the CAM Perennial exhibition.

Contemporary Art Month (CAM) announces its 2019 Perennial Exhibition, Ghostly Demarcations, organized by guest curator, Kevin Burns, Education and Curatorial Associate at El Paso Museum of Art. Ghostly Demarcations features the work of eight El Paso/Juarez and San Antonio artists including: Animales de Poder, Kim Bauer, Therese Bauer, Audrey LeGalley, Ingrid Leyva, Amada Miller, Barbara Miñarro, and Katie Pell.

CAM has partnered with Blue Star Contemporary, as well as Heavy Heavy, Dorcol Distillery, Ruby City/Chris Park, and San Antonio Current. The exhibition will be hosted at  Blue Star Contemporary, where Contemporary Art Month will mark its start with a public opening on March 1, 2019. CAM is also proud to announce visual artist Sarah Fox as  their newly appointed Board Chair.

ABOUT KEVIN BURNS

Kevin Burns is the Education and Curatorial Associate at El Paso Museum of Art where he most recently has worked on a number of curatorial projects including After Posada: Revolution featuring works by José Guadalupe Posada, Andrea Bowers, Cruz Ortiz; Julie Speed: East of the Sun and West of the Moon; Early West Texas: Waypoint and Home; 5th Transborder Biennial; and Papel Chicano Dos: Works on Paper from the Collection of Cheech Marin. Burns has also facilitated public programs such as La Frontera: Art + People + Place, a two-day convening in El Paso and Juárez. He holds a Bachelor of Arts  from Baylor University and a Master of Letters in Theology from the University of St Andrews (Scotland).

ABOUT 2019 PERENNIAL ARTISTS

The exhibition features the work of eight El Paso/Juarez and San Antonio artists who investigate structures and origins, be they societal, cosmological, familial, or personally constructed through memory and experience. Using various media—prints, drawings, collages, installations, textiles, and ceramics—these artists simultaneously construct conceptual frameworks, address their tenuousness, and critique and upend them.

Animales de Poder , an El Paso / Juárez-based artist collective, critiques cultural and societal structures of power through multimedia, research-based installations.

Kim Bauer ’s abstracted intaglio and relief prints of scaffolding, construction materials, found objects, and track-like patterns explore form-making and natural cycles of building, destroying, and rebuilding.

Therese Bauer ’s drawings and collages investigate fragility and delicacy, objectivity and subjectivity, and incorporate revision, erasure, and reassembled images.

Audrey LeGalley addresses heritage and domesticity, conveying familial anxiety and fragility through the medium of  ceramics.

Ingrid Leyva studies the complexity of the El Paso / Juárez border region—its duality, divisiveness, tenuousness, and permeability—through diptych photographs of empty rooms and sparsely inhabited streets.

Amada Miller explores the origins of life at a simultaneously cosmological and intimately human level using elemental media such as sound and water.

Barbara Miñarro, using ceramics, found material, and human hair, explores familial heritage and tradition, simultaneously critiquing and embracing its influence.

Katie Pell, through recent and never-before-exhibited works, explores narrative structure, composition, and dynamics of hierarchy.

ABOUT CONTEMPORARY ART MONTH

Every March, during Contemporary Art Month (CAM), San Antonio artists, performers and curators present the best our community has to offer at galleries, museums, performing arts spaces, schools, artist studios and various unconventional locations around the city. Contemporary Art Month is also the name of the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that supports and promotes these events.

Mission

Contemporary Art Month seeks to promote and raise the national profile of San Antonio contemporary art and artists by organizing and facilitating a month-long celebration of contemporary art, providing marketing support, and by organizing and facilitating public programs.

History

Contemporary Art Month started in 1986 by the director of Southwest School of Art and Craft in what is now Blue Star Contemporary, CAM became an independent project in 2003. The organization’s primary purpose is to organize, by means of a calendar, contemporary art events taking place in San Antonio during the month; as well as sponsoring a number of educational events in celebration of contemporary art.  In 2010, CAM officially moved from July to March. 2012 introduced the CAM “Perennial” Exhibition, where a curator from outside of San Antonio was invited to curate a show of San Antonio Contemporary artists. 2013 introduced CAMx (The CAM exchange), an exhibition exchange between San Antonio artists and artists from another city.

INVISIBLE THREADS Exhibition Opening @ SAY Sí

INVISIBLE THREADS
In Celebration of SAY Si’s 25th Anniversary
Opening Reception: Friday, March 1, 2019

In celebration of SAY Si’s 25th anniversary year, Invisible Threads celebrates our organization and the many links that tie our work to the creative community of San Antonio. The exhibit will showcase the community that has built SAY Sí including alumni, staff, artists in residence, and artist participants in our various exhibits and events throughout our history. In addition, we will present in the exhibition an overview of our core programs and the impact they have had on our youth, community, the city, and nation.

The event will be one of the touchstone events for the organization as we showcase programs and exhibitions to mark our 25th anniversary. We hope that the exhibit will highlight the impact that SAY Sí has had on the creative and cultural landscape in San Antonio. We feel that our organization creates a ripple effect in every single life that the program touches and this exhibition will shine a light on the collective impact the SAY Sí programming has had on the lives of so many. Additionally, one of SAY Sí’s core values is reciprocal learning, so we also acknowledge the contributions of the many creatives that have shaped and strengthened our organization.

Once you belong to the SAY SI community there is this invisible thread that links you back to us, sometimes its slack, but many times is taunt, reminding you of who you are, and how your impact has many intersections.

Villa Finale: Museum and Gardens Presents Exhibition of Outdoor Sculptures by San Antonio Artist Danville Chadbourne @ Villa Finale: Museum and Gardens
Mar 7 @ 4:30 PM – 7:30 PM
Villa Finale: Museum and Gardens Presents Exhibition of Outdoor Sculptures by San Antonio Artist Danville Chadbourne @ Villa Finale: Museum and Gardens

In conjunction with San Antonio’s Contemporary Art Month, Villa Finale: Museum & Gardens is pleased to announce an exhibition of outdoor sculptures by San Antonio artist Danville Chadbourne, on their beautiful grounds in the heart of the King William Historic District. The exhibition opens March 7, 2019 with an Artist Reception from 4:30 – 7:30 pm. This event is free and open to the public. The exhibition will continue through May 24, viewable during Villa Finale’s normal business hours.

Featuring thirteen recently completed outdoor works, the exhibition emphasizes Chadbourne’s typical integration of organic and geometric forms, juxtaposing bold color and graphic imagery with the natural surface qualities of high-fire ceramic, stone, and bronze. Like monuments to poetic or abstract philosophical ideas, these works stand as elegant markers of both massive, grounded form and ephemeral, enigmatic gestures. Each work is a complete, self-contained sculptural idea that finds unexpected linkages and visual interactions with the natural and man-made environment, and with each other, establishing an aesthetic and metaphorical dialogue that engages the grounds, the architecture, and the viewer in both subtle and obvious ways.

ARTIST BIO:

Danville Chadbourne was born in Bryan, Texas in 1949. He received a BFA in 1971 from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas and an MFA in 1973 from Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas. He has exhibited extensively at both state and national levels, including over 100 one-person exhibitions. His works are included in numerous private and public collections, including the San Antonio Museum of Art, the McNay Art Museum, San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts, Martin Museum of Art at Baylor University, and the Rockport Center for the Arts. Chadbourne has been featured in Sculpture Magazine, Ceramics Monthly, and The Art of Found Objects: Interviews with Texas Artists (Texas A&M Univ. Press, 2016). International residencies include ArtSpace India in Calcutta, India and Atelierhaus Hilmsen in Sachsen-Anhalt, Germany. Primarily a sculptor in clay and wood, Chadbourne works in a range of materials and in both two- and three-dimensional formats. Over the years he has created a complex body of work unified by a primal iconography and artifact-like quality emerging from a very personal and consistent formal, aesthetic and philosophical sense. He has lived in San Antonio, Texas since 1979.

Tacita Dean: Manhattan Mouse Museum, 2011 Film Screening @  Southwest School of Art, Russell Hill Rogers Lecture Hall

A special one-night screening of the 2011 film Manhattan Mouse Museum, directed by Tacita Dean, featuring a glimpse of American sculptor and Pop Art icon Claes Oldenburg. For Documenta 5 in 1972, Oldenburg, a life-long collector of small objects, realized his collection as the Mouse Museum. Dean’s film captures his attentiveness to his personal collection 40 years later. The screening, held in conjunction with Documenta 5, a current exhibition at SSA, will be followed by a lecture on museums by artists in Documenta 5 by Chad Dawkins, SSA Curator and Director of Exhibitions. This presentation is made possible courtesy the artist and Marian Goodman Gallery and with the generous support of David F. Bogle, SYNCRO Architecture Studio.
