  • “San Antonio|The Saga”   

    French artist Xavier de Richemont has created high-tech sets for theater and opera and collaborated with the avant-garde visionary Robert Wilson but is arguably best known for his dazzling video installations, which have graced the facades of historic locales across Europe, Canada and Mexico. On view periodically for the next decade, Richemont’s 23-minute spectacle “San Antonio|The Saga” employs San Fernando Cathedral as a canvas to “narrate the historical discovery, settlement and development of San Antonio” via a 7,000-square-foot projection choreographed to music in surround sound.

  • Two Women Look West: Photographs of King Ranch

    by Helen C. Kleberg and Toni Frissell

    Place: Witte Museum
  • Lucy Helton:

    The images presented in "Fire" are what remained from the post-apocalpytic wildfire in Bastrop County. Captivated by a discovery that destruction can transform to beauty, artist Lucy Helton documented the catastrophes she believes are caused by climate change. If so, these photographs are evidence of human carelessness, highlighting the weighty significance of our present actions, as what remains becomes the history of our species, the legacy we leave behind.

  • Daniela Riojas:

    Daniela Riojas explores ideas of the figure in art, Latin American rituals, letting go of the past, and Jungian archetypes in “A Collection of Work,” a Fotoseptiembre exhibition comprising several bodies of material, including Being and Becoming, Dysplacia, Meiosis, Blood History and Portrait of a Woman Who Will Lose Her Hair in Two Weeks. Riojas’ self-portrait series Being and Becoming takes on a different methodology, that of the portrayal of her various archetypal selves. These acts of discovery scrutinize a ritualistic component as the work discusses the journey of storm and rapture through the gilding commodification of the female body and domestic concepts. These scenes address Latin American and Mesoamerican rituals of eating gold and the altered state of rapture within a storm. Providing a contrast are more somber self-portraits of Riojas covered in flower and egg yolks—possibly symbolizing domesticity and child bearing. At its heart, Being and Becoming is about role identification through questioning the inherent value of the female form.

  • "Altering Space" 9/21 11:00AM
     

    Kathy Armstrong curates a promising batch of photographers at the Russell Hill Rogers Gallery at the Southwest School of Art: Matthew Albanese (New York), Kim Keever (New York), Kila & Rusharc (UK), Seokmin Ko (South Korea), Scott Martin (San Antonio), John Pfahl (Buffalo) and Barry Underwood (Cleveland). Their common task was to construct, alter or recreate imaginary or re-invented landscapes, “whether through dioramas, hand-process or technology, and each photograph has a handmade component with visible evidence of that production.” Given the culture-wide preoccupation with meta-landscape, and the possibilities of digital technology, it’ll be difficult for this show not to be fascinating.

  • "Invasive Species" 9/21 12:00PM
     

     With a title that might bring to mind such pesky flora and fauna as Bermudagrass, feral hogs, bastard cabbage and Zebra mussels, Artpace’s “Invasive Species” unites a trio of San Antonio-based artists bound by their alternative approaches to landscapes. Current chair of the Southwest School of Art’s sculpture and integrated media department, Justin Boyd is an avid field recorder but also creates installations, sculptures and videos in search of “true American spirit and inspiration.” An El Paso native celebrated for her Mexic-Arte Museum show “Voces de las Pérdidas,” Adriana Corral (pictured) addresses serious themes—including femicide and violence in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico—via installations and performances incorporating everything from ceramic body-bag tags to soil from crime scenes and rubbings of court documents. Nature, sexuality and the male form are key themes for Joey Fauerso, who teaches art at Texas State University and is known for atmospheric works encompassing painting, video and animation. On view in the Hudson (Show)Room through January, “Invasive Species” runs concurrently with local artist Jimmy James Canales’ new series of “exploits, experiments and performances” created for Artpace’s Window Works program.   With a title that might bring to mind such pesky flora and fauna as Bermudagrass, feral hogs, bastard cabbage and Zebra mussels, Artpace’s “Invasive Species” unites a trio of San Antonio-based artists bound by their alternative approaches to landscapes.

  • One Direction
    One Direction 9/21 7:00PM
     

    An English boy band? How did Lou Pearlman—the impresario-creep of the ’90s boy band halcyon days—not think of this? By dropping the rounded UK vowel pronunciation in song and picking it up for interviews, One Direction tugs at American teen heartstrings with an unfair advantage (like Manu playing YMCA pickup, or an English boy with a trendy haircut singing to a room full of pre-teen girls). Imagine the wallet-boner on Simon Cowell when he signed One Direction after their stint on The X-Factor. Cowell, you sly English hound, could you have known how much dough you stood to make?

  • Fantastic Mr. Fox
    Fantastic Mr. Fox 9/23 7:30PM
     

    Mr. Fox is a very clever fox. But oftentimes, it is the cleverest of foxes that makes the greatest enemies. Composed by Opera San Antonio’s Artistic Director Tobias Picker, Fantastic Mr. Fox chronicles a gang of woodland creatures as they attempt to outwit three very brutish farmers. Picker was commissioned by the Roald Dahl Foundation to compose the music for this live action spectacle in 1998 (over 10 years before Wes Anderson’s film made Mr. Fox famous!). Tuesday’s performance is Opera San Antonio’s inaugural offering at the Tobin.

  • Síclovía
    Síclovía 9/28 10:00AM
     

    Making recreational use of closed-off city streets since 1976, Colombia’s cycle-centric concept Ciclovía (Spanish for “cycleway”) has inspired adaptations across the globe, with events taking place in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Belgium, Canada, Ecuador, New Zealand, Mexico, Peru and all over the U.S. Launched in 2011, SA’s fast-growing version Síclovía (a collaboration between the YMCA, the Mayor’s Fitness Council and others) was an instant hit and is now considered the Alamo City’s “largest free health and wellness event.” Expected to draw more than 65,000 participants, Síclovía's latest chapter sees the car-free, kid-friendly outing taking over a stretch of Broadway between Alamo Plaza and Lion's Field Park. The 3.25-mile route also includes an Eastside extension encompassing Dignowity and Lockwood Parks along with designated Reclovías to relax and refuel.
