Selected by independent Spanish curator Juan de Nieves, Daniel García Andújar (Barcelona), Adriana Corral (San Antonio) and Wu Tsang (Los Angeles) took up residency at Artpace in January as part of its revered International Artist-In-Residence program. A recent recipient of an Emerging Artist Grant from the Joan Mitchell Foundation, El Paso native Corral has referenced disappearances and femicides in Juárez, Mexico, through installations incorporating rubbings of classified documents, ceramic body bag tags and earth collected along the U.S.-Mexico border. Often exploring a conceptual middle ground between real and virtual worlds, Andújar is known for interventions in urban spaces and his project Technologies To The People, an initiative that presents access to technology as a human right. Often collaborating with partner Tosh (aka boychild), Tsang has addressed queer and trans experience in the award-winning feature film WILDNESS, the 2012 Whitney Biennial installation GREEN ROOM and the ongoing project Moved by the Motion — which recently took shape in a performance inspired by Chinese revolutionary poet Qiu Jin and her relationship with calligrapher Wu Zhiying. Free, 6-9pm (panel talk at 7pm) Thu, Artpace, 445 N. Main Ave., (210) 212-4900, — Bryan Rindfuss
