(Feb. 9, 2006)--UTSA's off-campus gallery, the UTSA Satellite Space presents "Killing Two Birds with One Stone," an exhibit of art by UTSA students J. Derrick Durham (San Antonio) and Jen Lopez (Chicago), through Feb. 19.
Both artists utilize multiple media to investigate the concepts of private and public space and the human place within such spaces.
- La Prensa Foundation is newest member of UTSA Lone Star Society
- UTSA alumna Jordan Kaufmann wins $50K for new stent-graft start-up
- UTSA begins new way-finding sign installation this summer at Main Campus
- USA Today: UTSA long jumper Tyler Williamson rescues three-year-old boy
Utilizing print, video and specially produced texts, Lopez's work negotiates those tender spaces within the dynamic of interpersonal relationships.
Durham's multi-faceted, site-specific installation takes issue with public perceptions of current world events through the myopic lens of the media and the imposed distance such a filter places between events and the viewer.
The UTSA Satellite Space is at 115 Blue Star, Blue Star Contemporary Art Center, South Alamo and Probandt streets in downtown San Antonio. Gallery hours are noon-6 p.m., Friday-Sunday, or by appointment.
