Artpace’s International Artists-in-Residence program continues with its Spring 2021 cohort, selected by guest curator Gilbert Vicario (Phoenix, Arizona).

This spring’s residents are Nazafarin Lotfi (Tehran, Iran/Tuscon, Arizona), Adrian Aguilera (Austin, Texas/Monterrey, Mexico) and Angel Nevarez and Valerie Tevere (Brooklyn, New York).



During the virtual opening, the artists will give a walk-through of each of their exhibitions.

Both multimedia artists, Lotfi’s work “combines drawing, painting and sculpture to create transitory spaces, which unfold between dimensions, often contradicting themselves,” and Aguilar “[works] with a variety of mediums that include sculpture, text-based work, print media, video, and installations.”

Longtime collaborators Nevarez and Tevere have an interdisciplinary practice that explores “the intersection between music, civic action, and historical moments that resonate through distinct musical instrumentation and sonorous traditions.”

Free, 6 p.m. Thursday, March 25, artpace.org.
