UTSA NEW MEDIA COLLECTIVE: IN RELATION TO
UTSA NEW MEDIA COLLECTIVE: IN RELATION TO APRIL 12 - 27, 2018
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
From April 12—27, Sala Diaz will host In Relation to, in which the UTSA New Media Collective will exhibit site-specific, interactive, interdisciplinary installations and live performances created exclusively for the opening and closing dates.
In Relation To explores the essence of the term relationship, poetically contextualized through situational aspects of time, space, ritual and the body. Eighteen artists will collaborate to produce this experiential event using live video projection, sound, performance and sculpture to aesthetically activate the space.
ABOUT SALA DIAZ
Sala Diaz, a 501(c) 3 exhibition space, is an experimental venue for contemporary art established in 1995. Located in the heart of the Cultural Arts District, Sala Diaz provides a unique venue for the exhibition of new and challenging work and fosters lasting exchange between our city and creative communities abroad. Housed in the same residential structure as the gallery, The Casa Chuck Residency is an invitational program through which Sala Diaz provides critics, curators and writers a haven for varied creative pursuits. Initiated in 2011, the residency honors the legacy of visionary artist, arts advocate, cultural maven and bon vivant Chuck Ramirez who died the previous year. Official residents spend one month living in Ramirez’ former abode, exploring and interacting with the surrounding arts community. Sala/Casa hosts a wide variety of arts professionals in-between residencies including critics, curators, musicians, scholars and visual artists.
Sala Diaz is supported by H-E-B's Community Investment Program, The Flohr Family Foundation, The Lifschutz Foundation, The John L. Santikos Charitable Foundation Fund of the San Antonio Area Foundation, The Smothers Foundation and numerous individuals including Mike Casey, Sonya Dawson, Lorena & Joel Dunlap, Nina Hassele, Chris Hill, Reagan Johns, Rick Liberto, Trish Marcus & the Ramirez Family, Laurence Miller, Steve Ogle, Brad Parman & Tim Seeliger, Patricia Ruiz-Healy, Don Thomas & Lara Flynn Boyle.
