CAMH has partnered with Aurora Picture Show for a screening of Tía Chuck, the captivating feature length directorial debut by filmmakers Angela and Mark Walley chronicling the life and work of the late artist Chuck Ramirez (1962-2010). Ramirez’s work is included in the exhibition Right Here, Right Now: San Antonio on view at CAMH through August 5, 2018.  His artworks investigate everyday life and are charged with metaphors of cultural identity, sexuality, and mortality. Ramirez was a charismatic and integral part of a flourishing contemporary art scene in San Antonio and saw his HIV+ diagnosis in the early 1990s as motivation to pursue his dream of becoming a successful artist. Before his untimely death in 2010, Ramirez became one of San Antonio’s most beloved artists and exhibited his artwork nationally and internationally.
