Thrown into Contemporary Art Month’s vivid mix back in 2012, the CAM Perennial exhibition tasks out-of-town curators with fishing from a vast and varied pool of San Antonio artists. As we outlined last CAM in Leslie Moody Castro’s guest column The Curator Diaries, the selection process — and sometimes even the exhibition’s theme — relies heavily on studio visits. Although she knew little about the Alamo City’s art scene, New Orleans-based curator Amy Mackie dove into it late last year when she narrowed down a list of 200 potential artists and conducted 20 studio visits. Offering a bit of a double entendre with its title, “Move Me” connects eight artists using physical movement as a visual tool as well as others creating works that “move” Mackie. Broad in its scope, the group show promises everything from conceptual video projects by Jimmy James Canales (pictured) and Jennifer Ling Datchuk to performance-based experiments by Roberto Celis and Kristin Gamez. Free, 6-9pm, Museo Guadalupe, 723 S. Brazos St., 271-3151, — Bryan Rindfuss
