Ruby City / September 8, 2022 - April 30, 2023 / San Antonio, Texas


Ruby City will present Tangible/Nothing, the first reinstallation of its permanent collection galleries since it opened in 2019. The exhibition will feature approximately 40 works by national and international artists as well as those with San Antonio and Texas ties, including recent acquisitions on view for the first time. Tangible/Nothing explores how the invisible or the seemingly mundane can reveal great meaning. Some works represent apparent voids, vestiges of what’s missing or subjects not pictured– a pair of arms bereft of a body, a woman represented only by her purse or Miss America seen only as a floating crown. Other works represent or incorporate everyday objects that stand in for big ideas, such as empty paint cans representing a white, heroic vision of America’s history or a bright pink stove calling out the pervasiveness of traditional gender roles. Artists represented include David Avalos, David Cabrera, Nathan Carter, Nate Cassie, Willie Cole, Dorothy Cross, Milagros de la Torre, Thomas Demand, Alejandro Diaz, Willie Doherty, Sam Durant, Kate Ericson and Mel Ziegler, Teresita Fernández, Michel Francois, Isa Genzken, Mona Hatoum, Sir Isaac Julian, Nina Katchadourian, Rick Lowe, Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle, Daniel Joseph Martinez, Adam McEwen, Yasumasa Morimura, Michael O’Malley, Gabriel Orozco, Ruben Ortiz-Torres and Jim Mendiola, Cornelia Parker, Katie Pell, Paul Pfeiffer, Chuck Ramirez, Juan Miguel Ramos, Dario Robleto, Doris Salcedo, Adam Schreiber, Rikrit Tiravanija, and others.
