On an ongoing basis Artpace organizes projects for its busy, downtown windows on N. Main Avenue, activating the art viewing experience from the sidewalk level. The program demonstrates Artpace?commitment to extending the dialogue about contemporary art beyond traditional gallery spaces, and in this spirit, in 2004 Artpace has begun organizing WindowWorks projects beyond its own building, and deeper into downtown with several projects in the windows of the Stuart Building at 306 E. Houston St.
San Antonio-born, New York City-based Alejandro Diaz?strategically uses everyday material to amplify notions of contemporary commercial culture. Incorporating signage, glitter, cardboard, cookies, and postcards he consistently questions divisions between high and low by intermingling conventional notions of each. Recent projects have focused on signage and product-design, two iconic elements of popular culture.
