"Kunst/Arte: A Dialogue"

Billed as “the first official art exhibition” to be staged in conjunction with the Alamo City’s yearlong Tricentennial celebration, “Kunst/Arte: A Dialogue” explores the creative common ground between “the two largest immigration groups that shaped the image and face of San Antonio.” Organized by the Lone Star Art Alliance (a statewide nonprofit with ties to Germany, Italy, India, Peru and Mexico), hosted by the Mexican Cultural Institute (in collaboration with the Consulate General of Mexico in San Antonio) and curated by German transplant Angelika Jansen (who helps facilitate the Blue Star Berlin Residency), the two-man show finds parallels in the exuberant, color-rich works of Alejandro Colunga and Klaus Killisch. A native of Guadalajara, Colunga studied architecture and even joined the circus before developing his artistic style — which marries elements of surrealism, folk art and fantasy in paintings and sculptural projects. As for Berlin-based Killisch, his poppy, mixed-media paintings blur lines between figuration and abstraction while maintaining an underlying sense of nostalgia. Beyond the “cultural dialogue” on view in the gallery, both artists will be working with SAY Sí, Clark High School, Trinity University and UTSA, and conducting one-on-one studio visits with students. Following the opening reception, “Kunst/Arte: A Dialogue” remains on view through March 11.
