Exhibition Description “The Cat in His Underwear: Photos From Austin” Photographs by Ed Malcik
Exhibition at Mockingbird Handprints in the Blue Star complex during Fotoseptiembre 2019
This exhibition, shot on the streets of Austin between 2009 and 2019, show the country’s 11th largest city as unique and much different from San Antonio. They provide a feeling of what the city is like through subjects grand and banal: cityscapes, bars, advertising, street art, street performances during South by Southwest, humor, odd juxtapositions, animals, ambiguity, University of Texas football, guns, religion, and music, plus references to local celebrities like Willie Nelson, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and Farah Fawcett. The exhibition’s title, “The Cat in His Underwear,” describes one of the photos and reflects the city’s irreverence and humor. A book of the same title is coming soon.
The photographer, Ed Malcik, had the popular exhibition, “Selling the Alamo,” about San Antonio last year at Mockingbird Handprints during Fotoseptiembre.
