Joey Fauerso: The Glass Cobra
October 15, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
San Antonio, Texas artist Joey Fauerso will present new work this October at kind of a small array, 106 N. Main, Magdalena, NM. The exhibition will run through November 19.
The title of her show, The Glass Cobra, comes from an improvisational exercise invented by Augusto Boal, a Brazilian drama theorist and political activist who developed a whole series of influential improv exercises that are used widely today. One exercise in particular, The Glass Cobra, involves two circles of people blindfolded, first feeling
each other in formation, with everyone then breaking apart, remaining blindfolded and reeling, trying to feel people more randomly.
Fauerso, who studied improvisational theater when she was young, has recently been using Boal’s exercises as subject and motivation for her work and for this exhibition will offer a unique collaboration with celebrated Texas poet Jenny Browne, in which she will respond to a series of single-line poems (monostitches) with monoprints as Browne responds to a different set of images supplied by Fauerso. This collaborative call and response will spring from deep friendship and collegial cooperation as seen in Fauerso’s recent exhibition, Wait for It, presented at Visual Arts Center, University of Texas, Austin and New Mexico State University, Las Cruces.
At the opening in Magdalena, Fauerso will speak about their collaborative history and Browne will read poems.
We hope to see you on October 15—no need to bring a blindfold.
