Britt Lorraine: PANOPTICON

Saturday,  6.23.18   |   8:30–9:30 pm
An exhibition and series of performances by San Antonio artist Britt Lorraine. The artist on their show: "One day while choreographing, the image of me kneeling before a metronome became present in my mind. I have pondered this image and carried that moment with me for fifteen years, knowing that it was the impetus for a work I would someday create. I began to form this idea of the metronome as an omniscient, panoptic entity that reigns over my time in life. The choreography for PANOPTICON is derived from the study of critical moments and central figures in my life. In order to attempt to get to the essence of a subject, I will represent each with only three gestures—a difficult attempt to eliminate extraneous movement. For example, how do I choreograph the essence of “Mother” in just three movements?"

The featured artists include: Hayfer Brea, Veronica Caceres, Ovidio Giberga, Rafael Fernando Gutierrez Jr., Vikky Jones, Josue Romero, Eric Saunders, Mercedes Stainken, Victoria Suescum, and Allison Valdivia."

James Smolleck: Transmissions from the Blue Egg

May 31 through July 29, 2018
"Borrowing elements from classical mythology, numerology, occult science (theosophy) and sacred geometry, James Smolleck’s collage work, drawings and paintings are potent yet whimsical parables that unravel the traditionally hermetic practice of self-discovery. His hybridized subjects—at once humanoid and animistic—roam vast landscapes, occupy sacred interiors and partake in esoteric rituals upon backdrops influenced by everything from the Flemish Masters and Medieval architecture, to theatrical backdrops and science fiction."

Mari Hernandez: What Remains

Elements of performance distinguish her work from other modes of photography and highlight the staging of identity, gender, and action."
