Ruiz-Healy Art is pleased to present Interval, an intriguing group exhibition guest curated by Hills Snyder featuring the work of Carlos Amorales, Fernando Andrade, Sarah Fox, Pedro Friedeberg, Nicolás Leiva and James Smolleck. The exhibition will open to the public with an opening reception on Thursday, June 29th from 6:00 - 8:00 pm with many of the artists in attendance. An artist talk will be held on Saturday, July 29, 2017, at 2:00 pm and moderated by Hills Snyder.
Interval: in everyday and global events, a moment of deviation from the original course, which if passed unrecognized, may eventually veer purpose in the opposite direction. Interval invites a pause and a place to consider disparate connections, subtle changes, implied possibilities.
Carlos Amorales is a multidisciplinary artist currently featured in the Mexican Pavilion at the Venice Biennale. Fernando Andrade was one of the four artists recently awarded the prestigious Blue Star Contemporary's residency program with Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin and will head abroad in April. Sarah Fox just returned from the Atelierhaus Hilmsen artist residency in Hilmsen, Germany and was most recently one of the six artists in the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center's Artist Lab in partnership with the Surdna Foundation. Pedro Friedeberg has just unveiled his mano-gigante, his iconic hand-chair, as a large-scale public artwork situated in Colonial Roma in Mexico City. Nicolás Leiva just received a honorary degree of distinction from National University of Tucuman in his native Argentina. James Smolleck has recently exhibited at Sala Diaz in San Antonio and Arcaute Arte Contemporáneo in Monterrey, Mexico.
