Rew-Shay Hood Project Part II
Rew-Shay Hood Project Part II, is on view at Artpace San Antonio through . Artpace San Antonio serves as a laboratory for the creation and advancement of international contemporary art.
This exhibition debuts a new body of work by Berlin-based artist Jonathan Monk. Monk is at the forefront of a generation of artists who have appropriated American conceptual art of the 1960s and 1970s to create contemporary projects that deal with reception and re-presentation. Located in the space named for Artpace's former function as a Hudson automobile dealership, the exhibition features a series of paintings after American artist Ed Ruscha's iconic photographic series and book, Twentysix Gasoline Stations. Featured in the exhibition are fourteen distinctive hoods that serve as canvases for the photo-realistic airbrushed paintings of classic American cars.
