Open Source Here
These works explore current, past and future identities of these neighborhoods in different ways. As they play with natural processes hidden deep within urban spaces, we come to discover San Antonio neighborhoods as living, open source material that can be used to create surprising stories about what it means to be “here,” today.
Featuring works by: Kellen Walker, Nicholas Frank, Amada Claire Miller, Mark Menjivar. Open Source Here opened February 10th 2018 at Dock Space Gallery in San Antonio, Texas.
For Open Source Here, each artist sourced all the material for their work from within a one-mile radius of the gallery space. Traces of their work, happenings and engagement transform Dock Space into a temporary proxy for the life of three surrounding neighborhoods: Arsenal, King William and Avendida Guadalupe.
