Contemporary at Blue Star’s Berlin Residency Program elevates the international contemporary art landscape and fosters global collaboration through its partnership with the Künstlerhaus Bethanien. Each year, Blue Star selects 4 San Antonio artists for three-month residencies in Berlin, where they join 24 other artists from around the world as the sole U.S. representatives.
Building on this exchange, Blue Star welcomes Patrik Elgström to San Antonio, further fostering its international collaborations and mission to nurture San Antonio’s art community. Obstacle is the second exhibition developed as a result of Blue Star’s relationship with the KB, and the first presented in partnership with Trinity University at the Michael and Noemi Neidorff Gallery. Elgström was a resident at KB from October 2014-15.
