January 2021

  • Paloma Mayorga  10 is among the artists selected by Annette DiMeo Carlozzi, former curator of contemporary art at the Blanton Art Museum and one of the directors of the Austin Contemporary’s Crit Group, for an exhibition at Artpace San Antonio. The exhibit, After Carolee: Tender and Fierce , was conceived for Artpace’s 25th anniversary to give tribute to one of its most iconic former residents, Carolee Schneemann, and to welcome to Artpace more than a dozen women artists with Texas ties whose works can be seen in dialog with Schneemann’s artistic legacy in striking and dynamic ways. The exhibit will be on view virtually on the Artpace website and on site sporadically through April 25 (before visiting, see their website for COVID-19 accommodations and hours). Mayorga is an interdisciplinary artist and independent curator based in Austin, Texas. She received the Emerging Artist Award from the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center in 2015, earned Best Visual Artist recognition in the Austin Chronicle  2017 Reader’s Poll, and is among Southwestern University’s 18 under 40 for 2020. As a former participant in The Contemporary Austin’s 2019 Crit Group, Mayorga was subsequently selected for the #BBATX 2020 Residency. Paloma’s work is also being exhibited virtually on through grayDUCK Gallery.
