Throughout the years of our fruitful collaboration, the Perennial shows have been met with critical success and popular acceptance with San Antonio’s diverse artistic community. In all of these years, CAM has applied the same approach to building a show. CAM has supplied an extensive open list of San Antonio artists to an out of town guest curator. Using that list, curators have researched artists and established studios visits throughout the city. With “no-strings-attached” curators have chosen from the visits artists to participate in the Perennial that met their own curatorial narratives as applied to San Antonio’s artistic community. In spite of the lack of rules or quotas, thoughtful curatorial practices have always provided the Perennial with a healthy inclusion of artists from all genders and backgrounds.
