Spanish Young Art: The New Generation opens at Blue Star LAB tonight

ARTslut Strongly Suggests:

Spanish Young Art: The New Generation

Although this wide-ranging exhibition technically opened January 6, Blue Star LAB postponed the opening reception so that guests of honor Miguel Ángel Fernández de Mazarambroz Bernabeu, Consul General of Spain in Houston, and his Cultural Advisor, curator Tania Tapia Paz could attend. Among the show’s highlights are “Democracy Rules,” a playful installation by Pablo Pérez Sanmartín, Carles Congost’s “La Mala Pintura,” a 10-minute video that blurs the lines between telenovelas, music videos, and low-budget horror flicks, and Cristina Lucas’ “La Liberté Raisonée,” a filmed historical reenactment that involves nudity — something ARTslut has always approved of.

Opening reception: free, 5:30-7:30pm, Blue Star LAB, 114 Broadway, (210) 227-6960, On view through February 5.
