Join us for the opening of our Hudson Showroom exhibition, Sister Cities: Gwangju to San Antonio, on Thursday, September 8, 2022, from 6–8pm at Artpace San Antonio.

In commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the sister city partnership between Gwangju and San Antonio, the Gwangju Museum of Art and Artpace San Antonio will co-host the exhibition Our step, Our hope: Sister Cities: Gwangju to San Antonio 

Since Gwangju, South Korea and San Antonio, Texas became Sister Cities in 1982, the two communities have forged a friendship that has lasted 40 years. To embrace the traditional and contemporary diversity of art in Gwangju, this exhibition presents a variety of media and introduces the academic thinking and artistic tradition that stems from the abundant nature of the region. The works in Sister Cities: Gwangju to San Antonio embody the spirit and history of Gwangju, and the connectedness between our two cities. Featured artists include: Hwang Young-Sung, Woo Jaegil, Cheng Seon Hooi, Lim Namjin, Seol Park, Haru K, Lee Jung Ki, Jo Eun-sol, Lim Yonghyun, and Lee Leenam.

The opening reception will include guest chefs from Gwangju, providing special bites.

This event is free and open to the public. Free parking is located at 513 N Flores. Please be mindful of the construction happening around Artpace. For a map of the construction, please visit our website at artpace.org.
