Artpace Summer 2022 Exhibition Openings
Artpace San Antonio is excited to announce two new exhibitions opening this summer: Michael Guerra Foerster: “Every Time We Say Goodbye” and “Carbonate of Copper,” curated by Artpace Curatorial Resident alumna Jennifer Teets. Both exhibitions will open to the public with a reception on Thursday, May 19, 2022, from 6–9 pm. The opening night will also feature a public talk, “Carbonate of Copper and borderland poetics,” with Jennifer Teets, Roberto Tejada, and Cecilia Ballí, at 7 pm.
In our Main Space Gallery, local artist, and City of San Antonio Department of Arts & Culture 2022 Individual Artist Grant Recipient Michael Guerra Foerster, will showcase his exhibition “Every Time We Say Goodbye.” In this exhibition, Foerster explores ideas of intimacy, separation, grief, and memory through ceramic sculptures he calls Floops. This work takes root in the artist’s subconscious. It touches upon the fundamental transformation of interpersonal relationships through time, the coping mechanisms used to bring closure to traumatic experiences, and the incredible toll of the human condition. “Every Time We Say Goodbye” will be on view from May 19–to September 4, 2022.
In our Hudson Showroom, “Carbonate of Copper” features international and Texas-based visual artists and scholars who work in various media to examine questions of circuitry, flow, foundation, and cultural inheritance, particularly about infrastructure, the environment, and geological time. The exhibition sits in company with the award-winning poem and forthcoming volume Carbonate of Copper by Houston-based writer Roberto Tejada. Featured artists include Gwenneth Boelens, Anna Mayer, Kate Newby, George Smith, Josie Ann Teets, and Roberto Tejada. “Carbonate of Copper” considers what we inherit and its inextricable connection to socio-environmental shifts in Texas and at large. The exhibition will be on view from May 19–to August 28, 2022.
