(April 17, 2014) -- The UTSA New Media Collective will host "A Show Titled, Like Symbol, Like Prince," a group exhibition and performance lasting one night only. The show is 7-10 p.m., Friday, April 18 at High Wire Arts, 326 W. Josephine St. The event is free and open to the public.
The exhibit is an original, evening-length art experience with themes focusing on personal stories, experimental rituals and "binary juxtapositions." The event will feature live performances, video art, a painting battle, multimedia installations and a host of innovative content. The viewer will be left to consider direct engagement with the sensorial experience.
Between 7 and 8 p.m., installation and duration-based works will be exhibited throughout the space. Beginning at 8 p.m., there will be a series of scheduled live interdisciplinary performances that will include a group sound-and-movement ensemble of "Beauties and the Beasts."
The UTSA New Media Collective is headed by Assistant Professor Mark McCoin and includes advanced undergraduate and graduate students from the UTSA Department of Art and Art History. Students in the collective explore the integration of live digital sound, video performance, movement, sculpture and combinations of space-time creativity with technologies they wish to explore in an intermedia format.

UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.
For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.
Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
