The Linda Pace Foundation is pleased to present the Texas debut of Secondary Stories, a room-sized installation by Brazilian artist Rivane Neuenschwander, who has become widely regarded for her often ephemeral work that explores narratives about language, nature, social interactions and the passing of time. The exhibition, showcasing Secondary Stories as well as three video installation works, opens at SPACE, the public gallery of the Linda Pace Foundation, located at 111 Camp Street, on April 30, 2016 and will remain on view through July 29, 2017. The exhibition is free and open to the public during gallery hours (Wednesday – Saturday; 12-5pm).
“The Linda Pace Foundation is delighted to present this hypnotic installation by Rivane Neuenschwander,” says Foundation trustee Kathryn Kanjo. “In Secondary Stories, she seems to take viewers through the looking glass: the outsized confetti makes us feel small and we become lost in the slowly shifting play of light and color. Since her Artpace residency in 2001, Rivane has achieved great acclaim, with major exhibitions at the New Museum in 2010 and mal-entendidos at the Museu de Arte Moderna de Sao Paulo in 2014, which included a version of Omission Points, created at Artpace.”
The exhibition’s opening reception will be held at SPACE on Friday, April 29, 2016 from 6-8 pm, and will include musical entertainment by local DJ Justin Boyd, along with refreshments by San Antonio’s Chamoy City Limits and Brazilian-inspired cocktails by Park Social.
A number of events including a fall community education events are planned in conjunction with the Secondary Stories exhibition. For details, visit www.lindapacefoundation.org
