"New Texas Voices: New New York"
2000-09-29 until 2000-11-26
Texas Fine Arts Association at Jones Center for Contemporary Art
Austin, TX, USA United States of America

Curated by Alejandro Diaz, New New York is the second in a new series of exhibitions organized by TFAA supporting the visions of fresh curatorial voices in Texas. Including painting, sculpture, installation, photography and video, the exhibition features work by ten artists living and working in New York City. The artists are: Anthony Goicolea, Danny Hobart, Scott Lifshutz, Elizabeth McGrath, Corey McCorckle, Josephine Meckseper, Shannon Plumb, Paul Henry Ramirez, and Chris Hanson and Hendrika Sonnenberg.

There's something for everyone here - Goicolea's photographs are like cloning experiments in a romper room. Danny Hobart's video is a kind of tribute to 80s movies and their icons, i.e. Anothony Michael Hall in Sixteen Candles. Josephine Meckseper covers canvas and magazines in glitter. Paul Henry Ramirez's drawings depict playful, biomorphic forms spitting and drooling streams of color into the borders of the work. The other artists work in oil on canvas, installation, video, sculpture and photography. Born and raised in San Antonio, New York-based Alejandro Diaz is both an artist and curator. He is the Founder and Director of Sala Diaz, a contemporary art space, in San Antonio and is a recent graduate of the Bard Center for Curatorial Studies in New York.
