Artpace San Antonio is excited to announce our Summer Main Space exhibition, featuring local artist and City of San Antonio Department of Arts & Culture 2022 Individual Artist Grant Recipient, Michael Guerra Foerster. Every Time We Say Goodbye will open to the public with a reception on Thursday, May 19, 2022, from 6–8pm and will remain on view in our Main Space gallery through September 4, 2022.
Every Time We Say Goodbye explores ideas of intimacy, separation, grief, and memory through ceramic sculptures he calls Floops. This work takes root in the artist’s subconscious and 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.
