San Antonio

"Tangible/Nothing"

Sept. 8, 2022-April 29, 2023

Ruby CIty, 150 Camp St.

As the first reinstallation of Ruby City's permanent collection since the contemporary art center opened in 2019, the exhibition features some 40 works by artists with Texas roots, such as Rick Lowe, Dario Robleto, Alejandro Diaz, Adam Schreiber, Katie Pell, and Chuck Ramirez, as well other national and international artists. Many works represent apparent voids, vestiges of what’s missing, or subjects not pictured–a pair of arms bereft of a body, a woman represented only by her purse, or Miss America seen only as a bobbing crown. Other works represent or incorporate mundane, everyday objects that stand in for big ideas. Admission is free.
