• La Liberté Comme Emblème d'Echec"Liberty as an Emblem of Failure

    La Liberté Comme Emblème d'Echec"Liberty as an Emblem of Failure

    From October 20 to November 2, 2017, "The office of Useless Art" and "Generosity as a Currency" will work together on the discursive group exhibition "Liberty as an Emblem of Failure" in 5 different spaces in Tamines (Sambreville). The exhibition presents positions by 9 international artists and will consider the subject "Liberty" from a contemporary perspective.


    Liberty/ A different political imaginary: The quality or state of being free; the power to do as one pleases; freedom from physical restraint; freedom from arbitrary or despotic control; the positive enjoyment of various social, political, or economic rights and privileges and the power of choice: The search for truth and the struggle for existential redemption. Depictions of liberty are usually limited to familiar symbols and quotes.

    What is liberty? The question is simple, the answer difficult. In approaching it, we (Dennis Guerra and Fred Michiels) decided to change the perspective and ask: How does liberty actually work? The "Liberty as an Emblem of Failure" exhibition thus appears at the right time. Just now liberty is a highly relevant subject for society, one that challenges discussions and active involvement. The works included in the exhibition show how artists of our time approach the issue—providing answers and being thought-provoking at the same time.
    Liberty does not present itself as an object, rather as a process of interaction and communication—not only between people, but also between all involved in the ecosystem. This approach differs fundamentally from the humanist worldview, which places man at the center. The focus is now on the environment: on water, plants, animals, even inanimate things. A reevaluation of the hierarchies within the ecosystem as well as of mankind’s ultimately harmful appropriation and exploitation strategies is taking place. The works presented in the show are dedicated to this reevaluation, and among other things, illuminate indirectly such social conventions as language or rituals of give and take that make human coexistence possible. The history of liberty is as old as humanity itself. While war is often considered to be in human nature, liberty is viewed as something far more fragile and fleeting. In our media age war and violence are profitable events and politicians focus great attention on them. Liberty receives broader social recognition as a capitalist economic issue only when economic disparity becomes less important and collective growth more attractive. The exhibition "Liberty as an Emblem of Failure" constructs connections with the help of which other approaches to a life with and free become discernible, Freedom is present, is witness, is being with the world and with others.” manifesto curator Fred Michiels

  • Texas Biennial 2017

    Texas Biennial 2017

    The Texas Biennial is an exhibition of contemporary art that celebrates the many cultures and identities that influence and impact our daily lives across the state. The Biennial is a geographically-focused, independent survey of the contemporary art in Texas centered around our artistic voices and the communities that thrive on them.

    After a period of evaluation and restructuring, the Texas Biennial is returning in its sixth edition with an ambitious program that celebrates the vibrant and heterogeneous voices across the state. In 2017, we are making efforts to shift the focus onto our communities to truly learn from them through our curatorial process.

    The Texas Biennial was founded in 2005 by a group of artists to provide an exhibition opportunity to artists living and working in the State of Texas. Since its inception the Biennial has offered exhibition opportunites to over 250 artists, brought work to new audiences, and springboarded careers and artistic development. As we enter a new phase in 2017, TX★17 will become the longest running state biennial in the country.

    The Texas Biennial was conceived from an open call for art across the state, which has long been a primary source of investigation. Any artist living and working in the state of Texas is welcome to enter their work in any media for consideration. In 2017, this open call will once again be a primary resource in the curatorial process, and applicants will receive priority.

    The TX★17 exhibition is one cohesive show that will take place in a single venue in Austin, located at 211 Alpine. The exhibition will run from September 30 through November 11, 2017. Public programming will take place leading up to the exhibition surrounding these topics, as well as while it is on view, further facilitating an inclusive cultural dialogue between artists and their communities.

    TX★17 welcomes independent curator Leslie Moody Castro, as TX★17 Curator and Artistic Director. Moody Castro has a history of making artistic voices and the communities they work within central to her practice, all of which oscillate around the importance of place. Moody Castro toggles between Mexico City and Austin as her primary locations, but has an identity in itinerancy. Under Moody Castro’s leadership, TX★17 will magnify the excellence and diversity of contemporary art being produced in the state through three lenses and three exhibition layers: 1) a survey exhibition from an artist open call, 2) the exploration of Texas regions through a documented road trip around the state, and 3) an invited artist exhibition with a focus on Texas’s relationship with its borders.

    The Biennial has worked with a multitude of voices which have strengthened our program and added depth to our history. Each of these voices has approached their iteration of the Biennial with their personal vision and methodology which has enriched our growth.
    The central feature of the Texas Biennial is a group survey exhibition curated from a statewide open call. All artists living and working in the state, as well as those within 10 miles of any border, were eligible to enter. Out of 1,217 applicants, 33 artists are selected for the sixth edition of the Biennial.

    Artists selected for TX★17 will be represented at a single venue, located at 211 E Alpine Rd in Austin, TX, September 30 - November 11, 2017. The exhibition opens to the public on Saturday, September 30, from 7-10pm.

    opening new nomadic art space
    Generosity as a currency.
    What is the function of the individual object? Is it still in a position to produce difference?
    A privileged space for a contemporary ritual (Nothing amazes me/us any longer) no longer just show works of art but form units with them that carry a larger promise. The classic gallery programma still referred to universal ideas of the public sphere and of history: Out there is the world, here are the positions! And it permitted me to explore limits and codes.

    Generosity as a currency / Generosity as a program
    Opulence was in everyone's eyes! (Das würde ich dem Betrachter überlassen)
    And the exhibition has left the building.
    When you say art, then everything possible belongs to it!
    So feel free to waste millions to make billions.
    Like memories in a conversation and in favor of idiosyncratic expression... (Life without a carnal formula may be odious)

    Spanish:

    Apertura de un nuevo espacio de arte nómada
    La generosidad como moneda.
    ¿Cuál es la función del objeto individual? ¿Está todavía en condiciones de p roducir diferencias?
    Un espacio privilegiado para un ritual contemporáneo (Nada me asombra más) ya no solo muestra obras de arte, sino que forman unidades que con ellas llevan una promesa mayor. El clásico programa de la galería todavía se refería a las ideas universales de la esfera pública y de la historia: ¡Ahí está el mundo, aquí están las posiciones! Y me permitió explorar límites y códigos.

    La generosidad como moneda / La generosidad como programa.
    ¡La opulencia estaba en los ojos de todos! (Das würde ich dem Betrachter überlassen)
    Y la exposición ha salido del edificio.
    ¡Cuando usted dice arte, entonces todo lo posible le pertenece!
    Así que siéntase libre de gastar millones para hacer miles de millones.
    Como recuerdos de una conversación a favor de una expresión idiosincrásica ... (La vida sin una fórmula carnal puede ser odiosa)

  • Mexican-American Perspectives

    Mexican-American Perspectives


    Del Mar College is excited to present, Mexican-American Perspectives 2017: My casa is your casa, an invitational group exhibition which runs through Hispanic Heritage Month and until December 5, 2017.
    The opening reception is Friday, Sept. 15, 6 to 8 pm, in the Joseph A. Cain Memorial Art Gallery of the Fine Arts Building, Del Mar College East Campus.

    Del Mar College offers a program in Mexican-American Studies which “provides for an understanding of the historical, political, and contemporary experiences of Mexican-American men and women of the United States, specifically in the South Texas region.” The DMC Art Program contributes to that objective through the visual arts. There is no specific theme in content from the artists, as the works are an exhibition of the scope and range of individual expression. While the invited artists are of Mexican-American heritage, their expressions range from directly referencing their heritage and a place of acculturation to making no direct reference at all. This spectrum of visual expression is the beauty of the exhibition and of art, itself. The range is reflective of the human experience and what artists share with us to help us embrace and celebrate that diversity.
    My casa is your casa, aims to showcase the talent, experiences, and diversity of artistic expression specifically from the contemporary Mexican-American artist’s perspective, a perspective that so heavily and richly helps to make up South Texas culture. The Mexican-American culture is our culture - my casa is your casa. Participating artists include Cande Aguilar, Jorge Alegria, Fernando Andrade, Jerry Cobarruvias, Amorette V. Garza, Sandra Gonzalez, Nola Guajardo, Ben Herrera, Gerald Lopez, Jimmy Pena, Joe Pena, Rolando Reyna, Ricardo Ruiz, Mauricio Saenz, Ashley Thomas, Nora Verdin and Mayra Zamora.

    “Found art, more commonly called found objects is a term used to describe art created from common objects not normally considered to be artistic. The idea behind found art is that the piece of art derives its significance from the context into which it is put. Found art blurs the traditional lines of what is art and questions the very nature of art itself. Found objects are often used by artists and may include the repurposing of street signs, license plates, or bottle caps, use of recycled paper, or imaginative application of household items.” - Smithsonian Institution

  • Border Wave

    Border Wave

    Border Wave features four Texas-based artists whose unique perspectives shaped by the South Texas borderlands inform a style that expands the parameters of Mexican American contemporary art.

    "Borderwavve” refers to a new aesthetic of abstraction and border culture that draws upon the artists’ bi-cultural identity. The phrase connotes a constant state of deconstructing and rebuilding connections between traditional and modern Mexican and American customs.

    Each artist uses this combination of hard lines, geometric forms, bright colors, popular imagery, and personal symbology to create textured and layered compositions. Their artwork effectively serves as a cultural bridge for overcoming social and language barriers. In a region that is frequently portrayed as existing under the spectre of violence, the border wave artists shatter these misconceptions and claim their space in the art world, on behalf of la frontera.

    Many of the artists exhibiting have had work on display in museums and galleries across the country, and some are currently affiliated with the Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Ciudad Acuña (MACCA), which, once completed, will be the first contemporary Mexican art museum located on the Texas and Coahuila border.

    Un/Provincial: Art of South Texas
    Brownsville Museum of Fine Art
    660 E Ringgold St, Brownsville, TX 78520
    June 11 – September 1, 2016

    EXHIBITION SUMMARY: The exhibition title, Un/Provincial, refers to the ever present contrast between the simplified view of south Texas promoted by the media and the reality of artists creating a 21st-century aesthetic on an international level. These south Texas artists, working in a highly informed and sophisticated way, refuse to be isolated by geography or stereotypes. Their work is serious, even when presented with humor; serious, sophisticated, deeply thoughtful and highly professional. By refusing to ignore the provincial and local, the artists find rich source material in the surrounding landscape, languages, and blending, clashing cultures. Viewers are drawn in by the intricacy, absurdity and mystery of the art only to find upon closer inspection layers of meaning that push the audience to reflect on the complex, tumultuous, constantly changing world of south Texas.

Through a variety of media (painting, sculpture, installation and video), the artists interpret their experiences growing up along the Texas-Mexico border where they were often confronted with strong visual and social issues.

  • *ACTIVE 8*

    Curators Statement
    "Active-8: A Mini-Ennial in Texas Art" should be seen as a small-scale examination of solutions and/or responses to contemporary concerns by mid-career/middle aged artists from within the interconnected art world of today who reside and create primarily from within the state of Texas. Talent from Denton to Brownsville, Houston to Austin, Dallas and San Antonio, all leading voices from within their communities, will merge to exemplify what has always been considered exciting, a boat load of cutting edge work with a fresh approach. Each artist represented within this exhibition demonstrates how and what it means to be concerned with new ideas in the 21st Century art world.
    The art in "Active-8: A Mini-Ennial in Texas Art" exploits ongoing issues today while inadvertently citing what is most important and valuable, freedom of speech and freedom of expression. Not only are issues of National Security approached and dealt with in humorous and logical sophistication, but cultural patterns are high-lighted and challenged, being put to the ultimate test of times temper, evolution. Painting to installation based media and more, regardless of content, replace candy coated news broadcasts and over-edited institutional persuasion.
    Whether it is an evident fact or a reiterated facsimile on a tired ink cartridge, it is pervasive the presence of peerless phenomena taking place at the state wide level. It is perhaps by the allure of the mysticism of progress, whereby we witness the keen eye of focus in each of these 8 creative individuals, eyes that seek to behold the new and eyes that pry open the doors of the future. "Active-8: A Mini-Ennial in Texas Art" restores and reintegrates itself into the matrix of undeniable sustenance, Art.

  • 7 Sins Group Show

    Seven Sins Group Show at Manichaus

    March 19, 2008 — McAllen, TX: A group of Texas artists will be showing their interpretations of the seven deadly sins in a group show at Manichaus (pronounced: manic house), a new artist-run modern art space in McAllen, from April 4 to April 25, 2008. A reception will be held from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on April 4, 2008. Artists will also discuss their work in an informal talk at 8:00 p.m. Manichaus is located at 1301-B, North Main Street in McAllen. Admission is free.

    The show, conceptualized by Marco Govea, will focus on the Christian and Roman Catholic ideas of human frailty. Although not mentioned in the Bible, it was taught that there are seven mortal sins that can destroy a person and rob them of salvation unless they confess and stop their evil ways. These sins are: lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride. The seven deadly sins were a popular theme for European artists the 14th Century with the advent of the Black Plague and daily existence in Medieval times.

    The current artists involved in the project are: Cande Aguilar (Curator), Oscar Alvarez, Ramon Barela, Mark Clark, Marco Govea, Eduardo Ibarra and Chris Leonard. Find more information via the Manichaus website: http://www.blackrabbitworks.com/manichaus.
