The SVT Gallery at Salvage Vanguard Theater is proud to announce an exhibit of works by sculpture artist Roberto Benavidez. October 3rd- 24th 2015.

Opening exhibit on October 3rd, 3- 6pm.

Roberto Benavidez is a self-described ‘half-breed, south Texan, queer’ artist based in Los Angeles. Benavidez experimented with traditional craft forms, and now specializes in sculpturally elegant and fantastical piñatas. Roberto’s mixed cultural heritage, history and identity, and interest in high and low art forms has resulted in a philosophy and practice that spans a series of intersections between self and culture.

“It is these intersections that reveal the most about me as an artist who grew up closeted in the 80s, at odds with both white and latino peers, constantly encountering judgment and fear.” Artist Robert Benavidez says “I see myself as a bridge between worlds, respectfully blending disparate elements to provoke thought and transform cultural practices.”

Opening reception October 3rd 3- 6pm.
Exhibit running October 3rd- October 24th 2015

Gallery Hours: Thursday- Saturday evenings, during performances. Or by appointment: [email protected]

This project is funded and supported in part by a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts and in part by the City of Austin Economic Development Department/Cultural Arts Division believing an investment in the Arts is an investment in Austin’s future.
