Central to Siete Dias are fourteen haunting portraits of disappeared individuals drawn from an archival calendar originally published in 1980s Central America. These ghostly depictions exude a palpable presence, organized in a chapel-like arrangement, with three rows of portraits inviting visitors to contemplate the enigma of their absence. Seven single-word text panels are interwoven among the evocative images, each representing a day of the week in Spanish. These text panels poignantly symbolize the passage of time, amplifying the ongoing absence and uncertain fates of these missing individuals.

"Undercurrents" Vincent Valdez - Opening Reception

Artpace is excited to welcome back San Antonio native, Vincent Valdez for the opening of "Undercurrents." Artpace will display various works, including Vincent's "Siete Dias/Seven Days," which was exhibited at the Art League Houston in 2023, where Vincent was awarded Texas Artist of the Year. In addition to "Siete Dias," Valdez recreates a personal memory of his first museum experience through a curation of work. In collaboration with Joe Diaz, a long-time collector and advocate for Latinx and Chicano art (and Valdez’s first collector,) Valdez aims to elevate and acknowledge the artists who inspired his dedication to his craft.
