We're celebrating our grads! 🎓 Big congrats to Andres Borunda, who is graduating this month with his master’s degree in history.

He's a first-generation student whose dream job is to run a nonprofit so he can help other Latino students access the resources to pursue higher education.

Check out this video tour with Buster Graybill and R. MUTT taken when the trailer was at the McNay Art Museum in San Antonio! Buster touches on the themes from his exhibition “Abstract Utility” with @Fort Worth Contemporary Arts last year.

Nice video touring the R.MUTT, a survival trailer and mobile studio I fabricated. Thanks to the McNay for the video! And thanks to @tcuartgalleries @luminaria.artfoundation and UTSA Art department for all the project support!

There are only a few days left to see "Abstract Utility" by Buster Graybill at Fort Worth Contemporary Arts!

Graybill describes his studio practice as “navigating the brackish water between contemporary art and engagement with rural activities, labor and materials.” His most recent work, R.MUTT: Renegade Modernist Utility Travel Trailer (2019), is a 20-foot, extreme, off-road camper trailer that is both Doomsday prepper’s dream and Modernist sculpture. Graybill’s preparations for the end of time include sleeping quarters for 3-4 people; a slide-out field kitchen; a water collection and filtration system; a library of books on survival, bushcraft, homesteading and Postmodern art; and, a solar powered electrical system and refrigerator/freezer. The trailer encapsulates Graybill’s response to what he perceives as escalating cultural tension, paranoia, political anxiety, and an obsessive fantasy with planning for the end of the world. Ultimately he asks, what will you survive? He’s ready. Are you?

"Abstract Utility" is on-view at Fort Worth Contemporary Arts through Saturday, November 23rd.

Exercises In Repetition
Kim Bishop | MFA Thesis Exhibition
In her thesis exhibition, “Exercises In Repetition”, Kim Bishop offers a cross sectional view of the effects of experience on memory, dreams, and repetitive ritual within an interdisciplinary structure. Here Bishop investigates the idea, that “we have done this before” while she reinvents her self-portrait of navigating, as a woman, the social condition of her time in her constant endeavor to measure the standard that determines her worth. Her imagery focuses on the entanglement of body, time and movement to create a holistic self-portrait which carries a universal theme of quantum remembrance, trauma and the physical. Her exploration in drawing has led her to examine the way she draws and her approaches to representing the state of being a woman in todays world through graphite, thread, video and print installations.

Tales from the Line
Hugo Santana | MFA Thesis Exhibition
‘Tales from the Line’ addresses and expands the concept and expectations of visibility and invisibility of labor: physical, often exhausting, dehumanizing, and most of the times pointless. It creates unusual relationships between bodies and machines as a way to scrutinize the realities of global capitalism, dominated by the rampant production, distribution, and consumption of objects. This research and installation connects seemingly disparate places and things to create elaborate and subversive visual narratives by weaving fact and fiction together, highlighting the inherent beauty and absurdity of our contemporary existence.

Transference
Jessica Lauren Smith | MFA Thesis Exhibition
On view March 24th to April 1st

Reception: March 25th from 4:00 pm to 6:00pm

Transference is an immersive, sensorial experience targeted toward leaving a lasting impression on the audience's subconscious mind. My key themes include presence and perception, the portal or threshold that lies between myself and the viewer, and the ultimate, pure source of life and creation. The environments created in Transference, relate to the inner world, the outer world and the vast, unknown space beyond. These spaces and objects are activated by light and transformed with sound. By combining various stimulating elements, the work pushes and challenges viewers' awareness of space and sound in a way that suspends their belief in their own reality.

This exhibition is free and open to the public.

Gallery Hours

Thursdays - Saturdays: 10 am until 3pm and by appointment.

Freeze Sucka!
Humphrey Kaye Rogers | MFA Thesis Exhibition

Nov.1 - Nov. 12, 2021
Closing Reception: Friday November 12th 4-6pm

“Freeze, Sucka!” is a series of paintings that comment on pop-culture's oppressive influence on African-American identity. Through these watercolor paintings, the viewer is invited to rethink the messages of pop-culture entertainment that they may have subconsciously taken in. The exhibition comments on pop-culture in two ways: first by self-portraiture and then by re-contextualizing specific mainstream cinema."
