Opening on First Friday and on view throughout April, Presa House’s latest exhibit, whether intentionally or not, pairs perfectly with this month’s primary preoccupation for much of San Antonio: Fiesta. Featuring work from rising South Texas artist Cande Aguilar, the solo show is called “barrioPOP.”

Over the top, inescapably engaging, low-brow, gorgeous, and poignant in turns, the bright and complex works in “barrioPOP” feel as relevant to San Anto as they are to the Brownsville borderlands that Aguilar hails from. More than just the title of this particular exhibition, “barrioPOP” is a “distinctive artistic style” focused on “creating vibrant works that combine graffiti art, pop culture and street phenomena deeply influenced by South Texas border culture.”

This opening reception features beats by DJ Electric Messiah (aka Roy Garza) and a performance by local artist Jacinto Guevara.

Free, Fri Apr 6, 6-11pm, Presa House Gallery, 725 S. Presa St., (210) 913-5842, presahouse.com.
