From April 8 to May 14, the fourth edition of the Texas Biennial is coming to a city near you! If you don’t know what that implies, this should be the year that you find out. The Texas Biennial brings Austin, San Antonio and Houston the finest of Texas contemporary art that has been selected and curated by the knowledgeable and talented art historian, Virginia Rutledge. All throughout these cities, a variety of visual art ranging from paintings to video installations will be housed throughout galleries and museums.
Mexic-Arte in Austin will be participating in the Texas Biennial and displaying art installations by Sam Coronado and Más Rudas. Sam Coronado: A Retrospective will showcase the genius and art of Sam Coronado from the past 35 years. His work has played an important role in Latino and Mexican-American arts and continues to do so today with his Latino community based collective, Serie Project. The girls with attitude, character, and extreme talent who form the “Más Rudas” Chicana art collective strive to create art that document their perspectives, experiences, and aesthetic. This year, Más Rudas will present Chicanas Only, a salon-style exhibit showcasing each member’s visual representation of Chicana sexuality.
The two together housed under one roof is going to be explosive. Colors will abound and forms will vary causing our senses to be titillated while we expand our knowledge of contemporary Latino art. You don’t want to miss this one!
