Veiled in Flesh, an exhibition and performance piece by local artist Julia Barbosa Landois, opens Friday, June 6th, with a reception from 6-9 pm at Cactus Bra Space. The performance will commence at 6:30 pm and continue throughout the reception.
Veiled in Flesh takes place within an installation that includes artist-crafted objects, photographs, and video stills. The artist will be on view in a plexiglass vitrine and available for subtle audience interaction. The exhibition references Catholic aesthetics of body display while examining the role of ritual in the face of acculturation, all with a feminist subtext. The performance component of Veiled in Flesh debuted last year in Philadelphia at Ice Box Project Space. This is the first showing in San Antonio.
