POCa MADRE Media is proud to sponsor exhibitions by and/or for communities of color, LGBTQ and/or female-identifying artists and curators.
Poca Madre Arts is pleased to present Continental Divide, an exhibition of new photo, installation and performance work by Austin-based, multidisciplinary artist and independent curator Michael Anthony García.
The work presented speaks to cultural separation and alienation of the communities of color in the city of Austin, to initiate dialogue about these issues which have arisen from its booming growth.
The body of work presented in the exhibition is comprised of photos of site-specific installations/ portraits of Austinites-of-color projected onto their beds and clothing, with a related group of works setting clothing in natural settings along Austin’s Greenbelt. Additionally, a large installation composed of clothing sourced from various parts of the city will serve as a backdrop for a performance being debuted during opening night.
The exhibition will be on display at the St. Edward’s University, Fine Arts Gallery, 3001 S. Congress Avenue, Austin, at Texas 78704 (parking on Dining Hall Drive) to be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalog.
POCa MADRE Media is pleased to present “Wild Abandon”, an exhibit featuring five Texas-based abstract painters curated by Austin-based artist and curator Michael Anthony García.
As we find ourselves more & more frequently at a loss for words in this world, it is the intangible and inexplicable gestures in life that bring us solace and peace. The artists in this exhibition, Gerardo Arellano (Austin), Kel Brown (Austin/Houston), Jonathan Paul Jackson (Houston), Kristy Perez (San Antonio), and Naomi Schlinke (Austin), tackle the ungraspable via abstract painting & create work that is independent from our surrounding reality, speaking to something deeper.
The exhibition is part of the East Austin Studio Tour (Stop #361) showing at the PrintPress compound at 1207 East Cesar Chavez, Austin, TX 78702 and is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalog with an essay by San Antonio based art historian Claudia Zapata.
