SAN ANTONIO – March 30, 2014 

For one night only, April 18, 2014, High Wire Arts will host A Show Titled, Like Symbol, Like Prince, a group exhibition/performance by the UTSA New Media Collective.

A simile always stands in place of the original that it seeks to describe. In a comic evasion of this linguistic pitfall (of title as simile for the meaning of an artwork or group of artworks) A Show Titled, like Symbol, Like Prince provides a double state of remove through a double absurdist simile. The viewer is left to consider direct engagement with the sensorial experience.

A Show Titled, Like Symbol, Like Prince is an original, evening length art experience with themes focusing on personal stories, experimental rituals, and binary juxtapositions. This event will feature live performances, video art, a painting battle, multi-media installations, and a host of innovative content.

Between 7 and 8 pm, installation and duration-based works will be exhibited throughout the space. Beginning at 8pm, there will be a series of scheduled live interdisciplinary performances, which will include a group sound and movement ensemble of Beauties and the Beasts.

What: A Show Titled, Like Symbol, Like Prince

When: Friday April 18, 2014, 7 – 10 PM

The UTSA New Media Collective is headed by Professor Mark McCoin and includes advanced undergraduate and graduate students from the UTSA Department of Art and Art History. Students in the collective explore the integration of live digital sound, video performance, movement, sculpture, and any combination of space-time creativity (with technologies) they wish to experiment with in an inter media format.
