2020 CAM Perennial: Topographies of Truth

February 13, 2020 to September 13, 2020

Located in the Frost Galleries and on the Museum Grounds.


The McNay, in collaboration with Contemporary Art Month (CAM) San Antonio, presents  2020 CAM Perennial: Topographies of Truth, featuring works by nine San Antonio-based artists. Selected by guest curator Lee Hallman, this exhibition celebrates the diverse and compelling artwork emerging from the region. Hallman is also Associate Curator at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.


Although engaged in different processes and motivated by different interests, the artists in the exhibition share a spirit of curiosity and critical thought. Some works challenge unquestioned categories or confront historical biases. Other works investigate selfhood and identity. Works by several artists explore our relationship to nature, and the effects of media and technology on our ways of perceiving and understanding the world. Artists included in the exhibition are Jimmy James Canales, Anthony Francis, Nicholas Frank, Raul Gonzalez, Mari Hernandez, Megan Harrison, Buster Graybill, Jasmyne Graybill, and Amada Miller.


The 2020 CAM Perennial marks the 34th year of Contemporary Art Month San Antonio, and the eighth edition of the exhibition itself. 
This presentation is the first time a CAM exhibition is on view at the McNay.


2020 CAM Perennial: Topographies of Truth is on view at McNay Art Museum from February 13 through May 17, 2020 in the Museum’s Frost galleries.The exhibition is included with general admission, including free general admission every Thursday from 4 to 9 p.m. and the first Sunday of every month.
