Pop-Surrealism Packs Political Punch in San Antonio

BY Catherine D. Anspon // 05.16.15

It’s an important homecoming when San Antonio native son Alejandro Diaz returns to his home town for a one-person solo, “It Takes a Village,” at the Linda Pace Foundation gallery SPACE. The New York-based, internationally exhibited Diaz is one of Pace’s signature artists who showed early on at Artpace, the residency program/kunsthalle founded by the picante sauce heiress. Diaz left San Antonio nearly two decades ago to earn an MA at the prestigious Bard College, New York (1999). This show, curated by former Artpace director Kathryn Kanjo (now chief curator of MOCA, San Diego) draws on his witty high-low mix while addressing immigration and migrant-worker issues and the position of Mexican-Americans in the States, as well as skewering the art world (through September 12). Scroll through the slide show for Diaz’s latest, including the startling Pop-Surreal Muebles.

Home, chic home.
