Artist and award-winning independent curator Michael Anthony Garcia was tapped to organize this year’s Young Latino Artist exhibit, in its 18th iteration at Mexic-Arte Museum. Garcia’s “Con/Juntos” — “With/Together” — gathers emerging artists from around Texas.
To give a new twist to the show, Garcia paired his selection of Texas artists with emerging artists from Mexico, Colombia and Argentina. Working together — get it “con/juntos” — either in person or via the Internet to create, the artists made collaborative works for the show.
Featured artists include Raul Gonzalez, Daniel Adame, Sergio Garcia, Ricardo Paniagua, Robert Jackson Harrington, Isabella Bur, April Garcia, Nelda Ramos, Javier Vanegas, Colectivo Sector Reforma (Javier Cárdenas Tavizon, Santino Escatel, and Alejandro Fournier), and Tejidos Urbanos.
“Young Latino Artists 18: Con/Juntos”
Opening reception: 7 to 9 p.m. Friday.
Exhibit continues through Sept. 8.
