"New Texas Voices: New New York"

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,
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.
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
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.
