"Who the #@!? is Michael Martinez"

When: Sat., Dec. 9, 6-9 p.m. 2017

After having made some righteous waves in Austin for his provocative contributions to Mexic-Arte’s “YLA 22: ¡Ahora!” group exhibit, San Antonio conceptual artist and cultural worker Mark Anthony Martinez continues to make good stuff happen here at home. This Second Saturday at Flax, Martinez’s curatorial talents will take center stage with an exhibition of works he’s chosen from his brother (and fellow YLA alum) Michael Martinez. The exhibit — entitled “Who the #@!? is Michael Martinez?” — will find Martinez continuing his artistic excavation of his own identity as a gay person of color. Employing heavily connotative text, and textual juxtapositions, the exhibit “dissects gender expectations through the [lens of the] artist’s own given name.”
