International Artists-in-Residence

An emerging force at Washington D.C.’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, curator Mika Yoshitake notably served as project coordinator for the Museum of Contemporary Art–Los Angeles’ traveling Takashi Murakami retrospective (from 2005 to 2009) and brings her sharp take on contemporary art to San Antonio as ringleader of Artpace’s final International Artists-in-Residence exhibition of 2014. Representing three months of work (September to November) and on view through January of 2015, the endeavor unites Tokyo-based Takashi Arai, Austinite Anna Krachey and New Yorker Adam Helms. A contemporary photographer championing the daguerreotype, Arai creates images that chiefly celebrate the aesthetics of the archaic process Louis Daguerre introduced in the 1800s. Also experimenting with historical references and archival sensibilities, Helms addresses themes of violence, unrest and decay via charcoal drawings, prints, assemblages and tintypes depicting militants, insurgent movements and rebel soldiers. A native of New Hampshire, Krachey lectures at St. Edwards University and is one of 11 members of the artist collective Lakes Were Rivers. Informed by domestic narratives and everyday objects, her photographic vignettes explore “the relationship between the beholder and the work of art." Artists' dialogue begins at 7pm.

Chicken-on-a-Stick
Fiesta favorite chicken-on-a-stick is basically the supreme food booth snack from all of Fiesta. San Antonians look forward to eating it all year, and usually commemorate their first chicken-on-a-stick of the season with a selfie. It’s inspired chicken-on-a-stick necklaces, earrings, stickers and more from local designers, and has appeared on menus across SA so folks can get their fix. Thank goodness for that.
