We’ve got two shows that will be opening simultaneously in Laredo, Tx on January 6. The first is our video, Bruc Fugue, at Sound Art Space, a new venue for contemporary art in the old industrial district of Laredo. Sound is poised to become a contemporary art outpost on the border, and their mission reminds me of one of the best exhibitions MCASD put together last year: Strange New World: Art and Design from Tijuana.
The other show, Bruc Fugue: Models, will open at the Laredo Center for the Arts, and it’s designed to complement the video exhibition at Sound. We’ve taken the original trash models, or set pieces, from the video and worked them into another collage with photo remnants of video stills. The six pieces are at the top, with all the wall mounted frames below. The pieces hang from the frames, floating off the wall about an inch.
If you’re planning on being in the South Texas region on January 6, please stop by one or both openings.
