    TO UNDERSTAND THE WORLD WE INHABIT.
    TO UNDERSTAND THE WORLD WE LIVE IN.
    TO UNDERSTAND THE WORLD THAT SUSTAINS US.

     Today we live in a globalized world that is controlled and created by digital codes. From communication to transportation (of people, goods, and messages), everything is guided by codes. Mathematics and mechanics have created a new tool-based world, erected by engineers, physicists, and programmers.

    From the binary code (Leibniz) to Morse code, from cosmic code to the genetic code, we live in a world of codes. This exhibition, a collection of artworks and scientific works gives you the opportunity to understand this world. It will be a code-curated exhibition and demand new behavior from the visitors. The exhibition will be a mix of a laboratory and a lounge, a learning environment and a »Club Mediterranée«. Together with our visitors, we would like to try out new and perhaps unusual formats of education and learning, creating new approaches to knowledge in a relaxed and learning-stimulating atmosphere.

    Programming, learning with bots and other new technologies should no longer pose a limit to education, but should give everyone the opportunity to understand the background to our digital world of today. Whether with free entry to the exhibition, snacks and drinks at the museum or natural work in the museum field – the exhibition will change the approach to museum installations as an educational policy experiment in the area of »Audience Development«. The museum will be worthwhile for its visitors in the truest sense of the word.

    Artworks and scientific works based on digital as well as on analog codes are presented in the exhibition. The works visualize and explain the complex dynamics of codes, and the way in which they are increasingly shaping the way we live and perceive the world. The exhibition analyzes the ingress of codes into our lives, and the structures of knowledge they generate.

  • HOME BODIES OPENS THURSDAY, OCTOBER 5 | 6-9PM AT BLUESTAR CONTEMPORARY

    HOMEBODIES AT BLUESTAR CONTEMPORARY IN SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS

    October 5, 2017 – January 21, 2018
    Main Gallery, Middle Gallery, & Gallery 4
    116 Blue Star, San Antonio, TX 

    Featuring Ivonne Acero, Lenka Clayton, Catherine Colangelo, Karina Etcheverry Roberto, Casey Arguelles Gregory, Las Hermanas Iglesias (a project-based collaboration of Lisa and Janelle Iglesias), Courtney Kessel, Hillerbrand + Magsamen, and Barry Stone

    Home Bodies features artists whose practice and work are informed by and melded with family life. Through differing approaches, the 11 artists explore our shared experiences as mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, siblings, and protectors. How does an artist find time for their practice while being a parent. Can being a parent be artistic practice? Some of the artists in Home Bodies show us how. Other works address how familial experiences stay with us all of our life, even in the studio: the absence and presence of family members, the effects of those who nurtured us, the roles we are assigned and take on in our families, infidelity, sisterhood, and more. The artists engage and come to terms with the aesthetics of the materials of the home, including textiles, the dinner table, and stuffed animals.

  • CONTEMPORARY PHOTOGRAPHIC PRACTICE AND THE ARCHIVE OPENS AT THE HARRY RANSOM CENTER

    June 11 – August 4, 2013 at the Harry Ransom Center, Austin, TX
    Artist talk: Thursday, July 18, 7pm (more info)

    This exhibition was created in cooperation with the Lakes Were Rivers collective, an Austin-based group of artists working in photography and video. Members of the collective created a body of work influenced in some way by the Ransom Center—its space, its purpose, its collections. Approximately 50 new works are displayed alongside Ransom Center collection materials chosen by the artists. The pairings highlight how archives and cultural collections stimulate new ideas and creative acts.

    I am super excited to be a part of this and Lakes Were Rivers.
