January 9 - April 26, 2020
Curated by Erin K. Murphy, Artpace Residency and Exhibitions Manager, Visibilities: Intrepid Women of Artpace includes a wide array of mediums coming together in an exhibition with an astounding voice. Among the featured artists are the late Laura Aguilar, Jenelle Esparza, Mona Hatoum, Jennifer Ling Datchuk, Regina José Galindo, Autumn Knight, Margaret Meehan, Tracey Moffatt, Katrina Moorhead, Wangechi Mutu, Artpace founder Linda Pace, Joyce J. Scott, Wu Tsang, Martha Wilson, and Kathy Vargas.
“Two of the works in the exhibition are by women with strong ties to Artpace: one work by Linda Pace (founder of the organization) and another by Janet Flohr (of Hare & Hound Press, with whom many resident artists have worked since 1995),” remarked Erin K. Murphy. “The other artists in the exhibition all not only participated in our residency program, but their works address issues of identity, femaleness, gender, or feminism, which have been even more powerful statements in the past few years and is extremely relevant in the coming election year. Artpace celebrates its 25th birthday, but also in 2020 the U.S. will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment, which granted women the right to vote.”
With an eye to gender parity, we have committed to focusing all non-residency exhibition programming to female and female-identifying artists in 2020. We will be highlighting notable artists, and Artpace Alumna, such as the late Carolee Schneemann in an exhibition curated by Annette DiMeo Carlozzi. Schneemann’s work will be shown alongside other female, Texas artists that have been influenced by her practice. This exhibition will be followed by an exhibition featuring sculptor E.V. Day.
Now in our 25th year, Artpace has hosted over 240 International Artists-In-Residence. Each selected artist spends eight weeks in San Antonio, creating new work culminating in individual exhibitions. Our 2020 guest curators, Monica Espinel, Pilar Tompkins Rivas, and Natalie Bell, are visiting artists with varied backgrounds that are pushing the boundaries of traditional art practices to select our 2020 Artists-in-Residence.
