New Works Now

Exhibition: May 10 – Sep 9, 2012

New Works Now features the recent work of five former Artpace International Artists-in-Residence from Texas: Alex de Leon (1996), Katrina Moorhead (2005), Katie Pell (2006), Juan Miguel Ramos (2002), and Lordy Rodriguez (2001). Inspired by the importance of place and its relationship to identity and culture, each artist reflects on the significance of his or her surroundings. The exhibition considers universal and specific aspects of an environment and contemplates how truth and fiction mix in memory, while affecting a sense of nostalgia for remembered locales. Following its closing at Artpace, New Works Now will travel to the Dikeou Collection in Denver, Colorado.
