This isn’t goodbye
One of the most rewarding aspects of working at Artpace is having the opportunity to experience first-hand the comings and goings of contemporary art. At times, those transitions involve staff members. Recently, our Education Curator Alex Freeman ended his tenure at Artpace, beginning a new chapter at Austin’s Mexic-Arte Museum as the Education Director.
The staff congratulated our co-worker and friend during a farewell party with his very own monogrammed director’s chair, which we hope he will be utilizing daily in his new office. “I want to thank everyone for their unconditional support for me as I’ve moved from intern to Education Curator to Education Director,” said Freeman. “Remember the belly dancer? That will be a story for the ages.”
Assistant Curator of Education Kaela Hoskings will be stepping into the role of Curator of Education at Artpace.
Freeman recently curated Young Latino Artists 16: Thought Cloud at Mexic-Arte, which shows the work of 10 Texas artists, all under the age of 35, telling stories about the human condition in the 21st century. The gallery will host a free Brown Bag Lunch with Freeman this Friday, September 16 at noon. Thought Cloud is on view through September 25.
