Fünf at Blue Star Contemporary

All new exhibitions are now on view at Blue Star Contemporary!

Fünf highlights the fifth year of Blue Star Contemporary’s Berlin Residency Program and features new work by the 2017-2018 resident artists: Amada Miller, Andrei Renteria, Ethel Shipton, and Jared Theis. 

Blue Star Contemporary annually selects four artists residing in Bexar County to take part in three-month residencies at the Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin, Germany. While in residence, the artists are given a studio and living space, as well as access to workshops, exhibition opportunities, and studio visits with international curators. The exhibition title—Fünf means five in German—celebrates the fifth year of the Blue Star Contemporary Berlin Residency, which concluded in July of 2018. 

The artists featured in Fünf present works they developed while in residence at the Künstlerhaus Bethanien and upon their return to San Antonio. Fünf brings together four artists in an important exhibition, highlighting the diversity of practices in the San Antonio art community and the impact of this life changing residency.


Special thanks to our Fünf exhibition supporters Mira Hnatyshyn-Hudson and Neff Hudson, Angelika Jansen, Francie Mannix, Guillermo Nicolas, Penelope Speier and Sonny Collins, Carolyn and Richard Wiggins.
