Artpace International Artists in Residence: 

Creative minds from the distinct art capitals of London, New York and Marfa converge in the final installment of Artpace’s 2015 International-Artists-In-Residence cycle. Hand-picked by NY-based Cecilia Alemani, whose curatorial credits include Frieze Projects and High Line Art, artists Cally Spooner (London), Marie Lorenz (New York) and Larry Bamburg (Marfa) have been living and working under one roof since September 14. Given the creative freedom and experimentation Artpace inspires, all bets are off in terms of what the trio has concocted with the institution’s “unparalleled resources.” What we do know: Spooner has penned “plotless novellas” and satirizes such pop-culture mainstays as Beyoncé and Justin Bieber; Lorenz draws inspiration from urban waterways, works with found objects and operates a water taxi; and Bamburg builds peculiar — and at times humorous — arrangements from such unlikely materials as animal bones, electrical wire and skateboard wheels. Free, 6-9pm, Artpace, 445 N. Main Ave., (210) 212-4900, artpace.org. — Bryan Rindfuss
