10 Things You Have to Do This Weekend

March 20, 2014

Thu 3/20
International Artists-in-Residence Exhibition

Liz Glynn at Artpace

Last year, Artpace was among 895 nonprofit organizations selected to receive an Art Works grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. Not surprisingly, the awarded $65,000 will go towards the facility’s renowned International Artist-in-Residence program, which annually provides nine artists with housing, workspace, technical assistance and a stipend to create new works during two-month residencies. Curated by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s Rita Gonzalez, IAIR’s first chapter of 2014 unites Rosa Barba, Jessica Mallios and Liz Glynn (whose work is shown above). Born in Italy and based in Berlin, Barba deconstructs elements of cinema (film, projectors, canisters, etc.) with her conceptual installations but also creates unusual films like Outwardly from Earth’s Center, a fictional short about an island drifting slowly into oblivion. Working between photography and video, Austinite Jessica Mallios skews viewers’ perception of objects in works such as Rhombus—a soundless, looped video of a photograph of a painting resembling a skylight. Known for large-scale installations incorporating elements of performance and sculpture, LA-based Glynn generated considerable buzz at New York’s Frieze Art Fair in 2013 with The Vault—a project that entailed giving random fair-goers keys to a concealed speakeasy staffed by bartenders who whipped up cocktails along with magic tricks and murder mysteries inspired by Jorge Luis Borges. Free, 6-9pm (artists’ dialogue at 7pm) Thursday, Artpace, 445 N Main, (210) 212-4900, —Bryan Rindfuss
