An annual program that’s successfully built bridges between San Antonio artists and curators from Dallas, Houston, Mexico City, New Orleans and Miami — and also generated significant controversy in 2016 with an all-female show ultimately canceled for its failure to include a Latina artist — the CAM Perennial partners with Artpace this year to welcome Spain into the fold with a group exhibition curated by Canary Islands-based Adonay Bermúdez.

Following its run in Artpace’s Hudson Showroom, the CAM Perennial will travel to an art space in the Canary Islands. A renowned program that helped place San Antonio’s art scene in a global context, Artpace’s International Artist-in-Residence series welcomes a trio of artists (one from Texas, one from elsewhere in the U.S. and one from abroad) three times each year “to live and create art in San Antonio for two months.”
- Rafa Esparza
- John Medina
Already on view in Artpace’s street-level Main Space, San Antonio-based Corpus Christi native John Medina’s evolving installation “The Sunset Belongs to Us” reaches its second phase as amplified recordings of participants sharing Alamo City stories get placed in the context of a large-scale drip painting inspired by the San Antonio sunset. After the opening reception, follow the crowd to Southtown for the CAM Perennial & Artpace IAIR Afterparty at Sala Diaz (9pm-midnight at 517 Stieren St.).
Free, opening reception Thu March 22 5-9pm, on view noon-5pm Wed-Sat through May 13, Artpace, 445 N. Main Ave., (210) 212-4900, artpace.org.
