Disappointments Are Revealed at Samantha and Rebecca’s Slumber Party

San Antonio artist Megan Solis, who just graduated in May with a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts from the University of Texas at San Antonio, is the present resident at Hello Studio in the Blue Star Arts Complex. Her current exhibition — which continues in the vein of her recent sugary/grotesque, highly-personal inquiries into the manifold nature of dissatisfaction, fear, and anxiety — is entitled “Christina Is a Coward.” Through a blend of performance, collage and assemblage of objects, Solis explores social anxiety, the transformative possibilities of failed relationships, and the hollow, performative nature of happiness and the pursuit of happiness. To augment the experience of the physical exhibition (curated by Alana Coates), Solis planned an accompanying trio of in-gallery performances, the last of which you can still catch. Solis told the Current that this last performance (titled Disappointments are Revealed at Samantha and Rebecca’s Slumber Party) will “finalize the failure and disconnection of romantic relationships by creating a ritual of them.” If you didn’t catch the first performances, no need to fret. Solis explained that the pieces are only loosely linked and that the sense of “confusion and even revulsion to the performances” is as welcome as empathy for the characters therein. If this all sounds new, but totally badass to you, plan to attend a closing reception/viewing for the show on Thursday and the final performance on Friday night. Following the receptions, "Christina Is a Coward" remains on view by appointment through August 15.
