CAMx: “Mock Pavilion”

This year’s CAMx exhibit, hosted by Sala Diaz, is heavy. Literally. The 2,600 pounds of material, designed and crafted for the “Mock Pavilion” exhibit by Stephanie Kantor — including 1,600 hand-painted tiles, 36 ceramic vessels, tapestries and custom wallpapers — made the long journey from her home base at Black Cube in Denver to San Antonio by way of a huge shipping container. Kantor, selected by Cortney Stell of Black Cube as this year’s CAMx artist, created her installation with Sala Diaz’s repurposed environs and ethic in mind. Additionally, “the idea to engage the structure of the pavilion came from a recent trip to Istanbul, Turkey,” she told the Current last week. Drawing on a visit to Topkapi Palace, “one of the most beautifully tiled architectural spaces in the world,” she decided “to combine the site of the pavilion with museum period rooms and the interior of a home as collection.” The resulting indoor/outdoor installation is a multicultural (and magical) transformation of the space that sees the artist “focus[ing] on a few cultures per room and [thinking of it] as a tableau.” Free, 6-10pm Sat, Sala Diaz, 517 Stieren St., (972) 900-0047, — JC
