About the exhibition

This exhibition presents new work by three artists, Jessica Halonen, Ryder Richards, and Kamila Szczesna, selected from Artpace’s Texas Open Call by guest curator Denise Markonish (MASS MoCA) and curated by Taylor Bates, Artpace Director of Programs & Exhibitions.

“Complimenting the fall 2016 artists-in-residence, Objectives is on view in the Hudson Showroom, featuring: Jessica Halonen (Austin), Ryder Richards (Dallas), and Kamila Szczesna (Galveston). Each of these artists engages with material and process, creating works that reference the legacy of minimalism. Halonen’s intimate gestures and found objects, Richard’s industrial materials and performative gestures, and Szczesna’s bodily abstractions continue the conversations at Artpace this fall about process and the malleability of sculpture.” –Denise Markonish

The Hudson Showroom—named for the Artpace facility’s former function as a Hudson automobile dealership— features exhibitions that showcase work reflecting the organization’s regional and international scope. Support for the Hudson Showroom exhibition space is generously provided by the Texas Commission on the Arts and Artpace members.
