Michael Guerra Foerster: Every Time We Say Goodbye
The summer Main Space exhibition features local artists and the City of San Antonio Department of Arts & Culture 2022 Individual Artist Grant Recipient Michael Guerra Foerster. In his exhibition, “Every Time We Say Goodbye,” Foerster explores ideas of intimacy, separation, grief, and memory through ceramic sculptures he calls Flops. 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.
While supplies last, the artist invites visitors to pull a ticket from the designated area and take it to the front desk to receive a gift to take home.
This exhibition is supported through generous donations from the Linda Pace Foundation, the City of San Antonio Department of Arts and Culture, the National Endowment for the Arts, the John L. Santikos Charitable Foundation of the San Antonio Area Foundation, The Parker Foundation, Inc., Howard and Betty Halff Charitable Fund, and the Texas Commission on the Arts.
