Brown Artist Retreat: San Antonio

San Antonio’s Brown artist community —including any and all who identify as Hispanic, Latinx, Chicanx, Mexican-American, Native American, Indigenous, Afro-Latinx, or have a kinship with such terms— are invited to Retreat.

In conjunction with the exhibition Monarchs: Brown and Native Contemporary Artists in the Path of the Butterfly (on view at Southwest School of Art and Blue Star Contemporary until January 6, 2019), BROWN ARTIST RETREAT: SAN ANTONIO is a one-day workshop. Aiming to highlight the voices of San Antonio and South Texas-based artists, this workshop features a series of conversations that unpack the words “BROWN,” “ARTIST,” and “RETREAT.” Developed and led by Monarchs curator Risa Puleo and exhibiting artist Rafa Esparza, this event will repeat in different cities in preparation for a possible future national convening.
