Julia Barbosa Landois (MFA '07) performing at Fusebox Festival in Austin, TX

Julia Barbosa Landois (MFA '07) will perform Culo de Oro/The Golden Ass on April 26th at the Fusebox Festival in Austin, TX.  The Golden Ass is a multimedia performance that examines sex, masculinity, and the tourist mentality along the Texas/Mexico border.  Landois and musician Erik Sanden will perform dialogue taken from interviews with friends and brothel patrons, sex tourism website testimonials, regional folklore, and ideas about sex and spirituality from ancient Mexico.   These texts are then woven with strangely apropos pop songs and a grand finale video animation.  

Fusebox is an annual contemporary art and performance festival that takes place in Austin, TX for two weeks each April.  This year, Landois will be featured among artists such as Joan Jonas, James Luna, Tamy Ben-Tor, and The Coathangers.

Susan Fang (MFA '10) and Maria Rajewski (MFA '10) are exhibiting at the Fowler Arts Collective, established by Lia Post (MFA '09) in 2010.  The show, titled Buy Local, features new work by Brooklyn and Philadelphia based artists.  Buy Local, timed to coincide with The Armory Show, "acknowledges that while all of the work in the exhibition has been made with the zeal of an art-for-art mentality, at the end of the day it would be nice to sell something."  Buy Local, which borrows its name from the retail movement that has so effectively propelled local production and consumption, "aims to showcase exciting new art with the hopes that maybe, just maybe, we'll at least break even."  Fang and Rajewski will be showing in conjunction with Samuel Stabler and Brian Willmont.

Demetrius Oliver's (MFA '04) Exhibition Azimuth, which opened March 2nd, is the artist's third solo exhibition to take place at Inman Gallery, in Houston, Texas.  Azimuth is a show of Oliver's recent drawings, which, according to the press release, "derive from an installation he created at D'Amelio Terras Gallery in New York in fall 2011." This installation, titled Orrery, "featured umbrella frames and studio debris suspended around a single light bulb, mimicking the eponymous model used to depict the movements of the planets and their satellites in the Solar System."   In this new work, Oliver is  recycling Orrery's "umbrella ribs and stretchers to articulate line and space in two dimensions."  Azimuth coincides with the 14th International Biennial of Photography and Photo-related Art, presented by Fotofest.
