"Reflections on Landscapes and Memory"

Ana Fernandez
Launched in 2012 as a Contemporary Art Month initiative that brings out-of-town curators to San Antonio to “give a fresh perspective on the local art scene through copious studio visits and a resulting curated exhibition,” the CAM Perennial generated a controversial buzz last year when the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center pulled out as host venue of an all-female show based specifically on a “lack of representation of Latina artists.” Organized by New Orleans-based curator Amy Mackie, the 2016 CAM Perennial dissolved into “Diversity and Inclusion in the Arts,” a panel discussion that brought together representatives from CAM, the Guadalupe, SA2020 and the City of San Antonio’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion … but arguably sparked as much controversy as it did conversation by neglecting to include a Latina panelist. While CAM has remained steadfast in the “no-strings-attached” freedom it offers the guest curators of the CAM Perennial, it’s a safe bet that a few of the organization’s critics will be pleasantly surprised by the group Miami-based Chris Ingalls assembled for “Reflections on Landscape and Memory.” Hosted by the Southwest School of Art, this latest edition of the CAM Perennial unites works by more than a dozen local artists — Ana Fernandez, Guillermina Zabala, Julia Barbosa Landois, Joe Harjo, Sarah Fox and Alejandro Augustine Padilla among them — plus the unveiling of Vertex, a site-specific performance installation created by Saintlorraine collaborators Britt Lorraine and Kristy Perez.
