#McNayMembers, we're shaking things up! To celebrate the opening of Chuck Ramirez: All This and Heaven Too, join us for our first ever McNay Members Preview [Remix] on Wednesday, September 13. A twist on our past exhibition previews, this event will feature music by JD Samson, dancing, food, drinks, and more! Celebrate with us and be the first to experience this banner exhibition, the first significant survey of work by the San Antonio artist Chuck Ramirez (1962-2010).

Brooklyn-based DJ JD Samson is best known as the leader of the band MEN and for being one-third of the electronic-feminist-punk band and performance project, Le Tigre. Like Chuck Ramirez, JD Samson's career has landed her at the intersection of art and activism, where social and political causes disguise as pop culture.

Tickets will be $25 and go on sale later this summer. This event is for members only. To become a McNay Member (and learn all about the perks and benefits!) click here >>>

About the Exhibition:
Ramirez’s large-scale photographs of everyday objects offer a humorous yet poignant perspective on our culture of consumption and waste, and the reality of fleeting life and mortality. Ramirez was inspired by opposing themes—life/death and humor/despair—and incorporates hints of his work as a graphic designer at Texas supermarket giant HEB. Ramirez’s art explores personal narrative including his San Antonio upbringing, Mexican-American heritage, and HIV status, making the project relevant to Texas and the broader arena of contemporary art and photography.
