In Dig Three Tunnels, artist Joey Fauerso will present new work drawing from the histories of 19th-century utopian communities, the writings of Walter Benjamin, and early American radio plays to examine the realities, histories, and longings associated with escape both real and imagined. Fauerso’s work will be accompanied by poems and essays written by Neil Fauerso.
I will be exhibiting my commisioned film with original music by my dad, Paul Fauerso as part of the project 'St Anthony's Lost and Found', running from January 25th-April 28th, Culture Commons Gallery, San Antonio.
St. Anthony’s Lost & Found is a multi-genre exhibition grounded in the history of San Antonio, featuring community poems and artworks that pay tribute to both the known and lost history of our City.
The exhibit is a signature initiative of San Antonio Poet Laureate Jenny Browne, resulting from a citywide education project conceived for San Antonio’s 300th Anniversary: St. Anthony’s Lost & Found: A Poetry Exchange. The goal of the project is to commemorate the Tricentennial through a study of poetry and how it can communicate personal, social, and historical connections to the land, people, and cultures that make up the City’s landscape in 2018.

Seeing The Unseen
Jesse Amado, Joey Fauerso, Riley Robinson & Chris Sauter
Brownsville Museum of Art
Opening Reception: November 11th, 2017
Exhibition: November 11th - January 28th, 2017
The Brownsville Museum of Fine Art is pleased to present " Seeing the Unseen " a groupexhibition by Texas based artists Jesse Amado, Joey Fauerso, Riley Robinson and Chris Sauter. Together, the artists of this show exemplify the idea of design and construction through the theater of surprise and the unexpected. They speak about regional and global issues of family, addiction, technology and agriculture in an intimate and personal manner and turn the concerns of identity and the accompanying sociopolitical effects into a collective response and experience. The act of creation and process in these works provoke curiosity in a manner which should delight the viewer. Bold and attractive with an astonishingly unique expression – these artists redefine how we perceive what is before us.
I will be participating in the Blue Star Contemporary Berlin Residency at the Kunstlerhaus Bethanien this summer through Jul15.

Guest Curated by Claudia Arozqueta
Reclaimed by Nature is the first in a series of collaborative exhibitions at Blue Star Contemporary curated by participants of Sala Diaz’ Casa Chuck Residency, an international invitational program for curators and critics.
Featuring artists: Alejandro Almanza Pereda; Dulce Chacón; Daniela Edburg; Joey Fauerso; Buster Graybill; Jasmyne Graybill; Arturo Hernández Alcázar; Sofía Taboas; Raul Ortega Ayala; Kristy Perez; Ethel Shipton.
The relationship between humankind and nature leans toward a dichotomous visualization in which both entities are independent from—and non-contingent upon—each another. This conceptualization, forged in industrial age furnaces, leads to obsessive attempts to master and control nature, but this perceived binary is fallacious. Mutual feedback between the natural environment and human civilization is unavoidable: what effects one always reverberates in the other, as we dramatically witness on a day-to-day basis.
Featuring the work of Mexico City- and San Antonio-based artists from multiple generations, Reclaimed by Nature reflects upon the problematic coexistence and fragile boundaries between human industriousness and the natural world. Exploring environmental interventions of man-made artifacts and spaces, the works on display examine and celebrate natural forces as a timely reminder to attain a much-needed balance between what we create and what exists, despite of us.
'A Soft Opening', new work by Joey Fauerso opens at David Shelton Gallery on October 14th with an opening reception from 6-9m. The show runs through November 12th.

A Soft Opening
The phrase “a soft opening” carries a double meaning—the test run of plays and restaurants and the phantasmagoria of orifices, Cronenbergian portals. The common denominator of these two meanings is uncertainty, fluidity, flux. One never knows what will happen opening night when the red curtains draw back.
Joey Fauerso’s kinetic solo exhibition, her second at David Shelton Gallery, revels in the flash of possibilities. Across text, painting, film and sound, Fauerso luxuriates in a coiled chaos, telescoping from the whimsical, joyful intrigues of family to the dark, cresting tides arising from a year where the world is gripped with hatred and panic.
In Attendance, a six-minute video that splices earthy images of familial play with tactile, stark paintings and a serene ghostly long take of the ocean—all to a minimal metronomic score—euphoria and unease pervade. There is the sense and terror that things are always transitioning faster than one can process.
In Utopia, a painted tapestry of medieval proportions, men carry each other to and from a snaking, humid river. It’s unclear whether they are hurting or helping, whether it’s a grim death ritual or a rescue. Though depicted in metallic tones, it feels like steaming Technicolor, charged with the blood rush of immediacy and peril.
Similarly, one mono-print piece titled Contrast interjects the text: “Pretend You are A Newborn Baby” with smeared, swirled faces electric with sensory overload. The hinge flutters like butterfly wings between terror and wonder.
Several of the works space longer, surreally didactic poems with Fauerso’s monochrome paintings. Some of the text from the poems comes from things said by her children during make-believe games. As Fauerso states, “When children play and make-believe, the assigning of meaning and value is incredibly fluid. There is an elasticity to the naming of things.” These sequences are simultaneously instructive and disorienting, and much of the meaning alights and connects through the process of arranging.
The exhibition is inspired by Fauerso’s life, family, what she reads and what is happening in the world. Fauerso is keenly aware of the gap between these streams and the way they lattice together. Marcel Duchamp once referred to the space between components as the “infra-slim”, and suggested meaning could be located within this invisible seam. As A Soft Opening demonstrates, the infra-slim goes on forever.
