Coffee Chat: Adrian Armstrong

In conversation with Rigoberto Luna

Adrian Armstrong is a multidisciplinary artist from Omaha, NE now living and working out of Austin, TX. Armstrong received his BFA from the University of Nebraska - Lincoln in 2014. His work expands throughout different mediums such as music, painting, and printmaking, but his primary medium of choice is ballpoint pen. Through portrait and figurative practices, Armstrong’s work explores black identity and how the black body is perceived in predominantly White American spaces. He aims to portray what it means to be an African American living in modern America. Often using himself as an “every man” symbol, Armstrong’s work touches on topics such as depression within the black community, systematic oppression, and identity erasure; but on the other side of the spectrum explores nostalgia, growth, and success.

Rigoberto Luna is the Co-founder and Director of the Presa House Gallery in San Antonio, TX. Since 2010 Luna has developed numerous exhibitions with a heavy focus on Latinx artists of Central and South Texas. Recently Luna has served as the juror of the Third Coast Biennial National Juried Exhibition at K Space Contemporary in Corpus Christi and panelist for the Third Annual Tito's Prize at Big Medium in Austin. Luna has also served as curator for multiple exhibitions with the City of San Antonio's Department of Arts & Culture and the World Heritage Office. Recently, Luna joined the team at Big Medium in support of the Texas Biennial.

Nov 19
7:00 - 8:30 PM

Austin Emerging Arts Leaders [Working Title] series is a monthly workshop built to help you explore aspects of your creative practice while holding space for your artistic work, side hustles, or that thing you keep dreaming about but can�t quite pin down (or cross off your list). This session will center around Taking It On When You're Tired. Rachel Dennis and Kate Murray will facilitate a participatory dialogue and exercises exploring what it takes to be a creative, a placemaker, and a facilitator when we're feeling burnout, COVID anxiety, financial stress, seasonal depression, election fall out, all along with regular doses of downer days and existential dread. We're hoping to give you a restorative break, no matter what challenges you may be facing at the moment. We look forward to having you join us.
