Artpace introduces spring 2021 curatorial resident
Jennifer Teets is a Houston, Texas-born curator and writer based in Paris, France, working at the intersection of science studies, literature, and performance.

SAN ANTONIO, TX.- Artpace San Antonio announced spring 2020 curatorial resident Jennifer Teets. She will live and work in San Antonio for two weeks. Teets is a Houston, Texas-born curator and writer based in Paris, France, interested in conceptual work focused at the intersection of environmental studies, literature, performance and work relevant to Texas/local issues, black/indigenous studies and folk art. During her time in San Antonio, Teets will hold studio visits with artists across Texas and learn about the arts community.

Building on Artpace’s established International Artist-in-Residence program, the Curatorial Residency connects Texas artists with curators from around the world. Selected curatorial residents tell the story of the Texas arts community as they build professional relationships with regional artists, who often have limited access to art critics, leading curators, and promotional opportunities. The curatorial residents utilize their time to develop and expand their writing portfolios, providing critical perspective and creating national and international exposure to regional artists. Past curatorial residents include Juan Canela, Anaïs Castro, Erin Jenoa Gilbert, Dain Oh, and Catherine Wagley.

Artpace paused its Curatorial Residency program in 2020 due to safety concerns and travel restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to decreasing number of COVID-19 cases in San Antonio and the success of the safety precautions and procedures put in place to facilitate our International Artist-in-Residence program during the pandemic, we are excited to resume our Curatorial Residency program.

Jennifer Teets is a Houston, Texas-born curator and writer based in Paris, France, working at the intersection of science studies, literature, and performance. She is interested in the “backstory” of matter, its conditioning as both ‘natural’ and ‘cultural’ vis-à-vis materials, such as milk and cheese (post trauma goat milk production), terra sigillata (sealed medicinal earth), and mud. Within her work, Teets addresses the roles of consumption and contamination as an embodiment of thought which then performs, spores, proliferates. She has curated numerous exhibitions and talks since the early 2000s with artists and thinkers worldwide and is the director/convener of The World in Which We Occur, a research-based entity that explores themes concerned with artistic inquiry, philosophy of science, and ecology and its associated study group Matter in Flux. Since 2014, she has collaborated with artist/philosopher Lorenzo Cirrincione on Elusive Earths, an ongoing in situ work, process, and inquiry that looks at the elusiveness of rare clays, soils, and earths with forgotten origins. Teets is the editor of Electric Brine, published by Archive Books, Berlin, 2021.
