Spring Exhibtions: Works Progress
March 3 - May 8, 2016
Blue Star is pleased to feature artist duo Works Progress as one of three spring exhibitions.
In the creation of a site-specific installation, the artists take a hydrosocial approach to the nature of water and provide an alternative: society and water make each other, and this process of co-creation necessarily changes both.
The exhibtion is a temporary space to experience and inhabit the hydrosocial landscape of San Antonio and South Texas, through installations and a social environment activated by water experts, environmental advocates, social justice activists, and other people who drink water and care about the many issues it touches. Their Anthropocene epoch posits a new relationship with nature, both as a concept, and as a set of actual relationships. Water, for example, is central to our future, though we've long kept it separate from society, both literally and conceptually. Additionally the artists have developed an installation component reflecting on the history of Blue Star's physical building in relation to the installation concepts.
