Chicanonautica: Ernesto Art in San Antonio


It was last year at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, in Omaha, Nebraska. Some of my drawings, life-mutilated sketchbook covers, and copies of my novels Cortez on Jupiter and High Aztech were included in an installation by Josh Rios and Anthony Romero called Is Our Future a Thing of the Past?

Things are getting so chingada apocalyptic lately. But then they've been that way all my life.

Well, the Bemis Center has brought it to the Blue Star Contemporary gallery in San Antonio, Texas, Aztlán, from October 4, 2018 to January 6, 2019

So, if you couldn't make it to Omaha, but are near enough to San Anto, this is your chance to see some Ernesto art, up close and personal, or at least as close as the plexiglass will let you.

And for those of you who can't make it to San Anto, here's a closer look at my art from the show, naked, without any electronic augmentations:

Evening Spirits, captures what it's like to chill with cerveza under a darkening Aztláni sky.

Señor America is the spirit of the Border.

High Aztech Scene illustrated one of the many riots in the novel.

High Tech Voodootoons describes most of my work.

Galactic Aborginie Journal because we're all just aborigines in this galaxy.

Ernest Hogan is very busy with art and writing. Maybe it's a good thing.
