For Artpace’s 25th anniversary year, Artpace has committed to focusing all non-residency exhibition programming to female artists in 2020. With this in mind, we will begin our 25th year with the exhibition “Visibilities: Intrepid Women of Artpace.”

Artpace San Antonio is a nonprofit residency program that supports regional, national, and international artists in the creation of new art. As a catalyst for artistic expression, we engage local communities with global art practices and experiences.
To date, Artpace has welcomed over 240 artists through its renowned International Artist-in-Residence program. Annually, Artpace hosts three residencies. Each feature one Texas-based artist, one national artist, and one international artist, who are selected by a notable guest curator. Each eight-week residency culminates in a two-month exhibition on site. The mission of this program is to provide artists with unparalleled resources that allow them to experiment with new ideas and take provocative risks. www.artpace.org.
This exhibition is sponsored by the City of San Antonio Department of Arts and Culture, the San Antonio Area Foundation, Texas Commission on the Arts, and the Artpace Pacesetters.
