Franco Mondini-Ruiz, a San Antonio-based artist, was in town last week for a site visit in preparation for his fall 2011 exhibition at the Ceramics Research Center, which will focus on a unique installation of our permanent collection.
Franco is an exuberant, over-the-top painter, sculptor and performance artist, and the initial plans for his show at the CRC involve three parts: Dulce: Bisque Without Borders; Limpia: Revisiting the Collection; and, during his September 30th reception, Tienda Franco, his store of curios — plus a margarita machine and a live DJ.
Franco is represented by Frederieke Taylor Gallery, in New York City, and was featured in the 2000 Whitney Biennial.
Stay tuned for more mischievous adventures!
