Homebase: On the Cusp, On the Cusp of @ AP Art Lab

On the Cusp, On the Cusp of is an exhibition featuring new works by Chabriely Rivera and Domeinic Jimenez. The two utilize personal reflection as well as universal experiences to investigate the transitory nature of living and dying. Rivera and Jimenez manifest ideas on time, identity, self-perception, and trauma through interactive installations and two-dimensional works.

**Opening Reception: Second Saturday, March 9th from 7-10pm
AP Art Lab, 1906 S Flores SATX 78207

Chabriely was born in Killeen, Texas, and currently resides in San Antonio but growing up constantly moved state to state and even out of the country. She is a new media artist, who works with multiple mediums ranging from movement and vocals to video games and interactive installations. Her work incorporates themes of growth and stages of life, environments and societal situations along with a focus in social justice.

Domeinic Jimenez is a multidisciplinary artist who’s work explores ‘self’ and toys with the many faces and masks that filter when dealing with identity. The work often makes use of various disciplines and utilizes the found object, recontextualizes technology and printed ephemera to discuss identity.

Homebase is an interdisciplinary event series that provides the pop-up gallery experience for those interested in new media art and experimental music practices. Homebase has shown in the Upstairs Studios at Blue Star and recently closed Corporeal Landscapes at Sala Diaz.

Homebase: Concert, Q+A with Claire Rousay @ AP Art Lab

In conjunction with On the Cusp, On the Cusp Of, an exhibition featuring new works by Chabriely Rivera and Domeinic Jimenez, Homebase presents a concert and Q+A with Claire Rousay. Claire will play a set of improvised music and answer any questions related to her work and experience in improvisational music.

Claire Rousay is an improviser, percussionist, and event organizer based in San Antonio, Texas. Rousay explores queerness, human physicality, and self perception through the use of physical objects and their potential sounds.

Rousay has recently performed with Tom Carter, Lori Goldstein, Ingebrigt Haker-Flaten, Paul Giallorenzo, and Brandon Lopez. She is working extensively within a duo context with both Michael Foster and Jacob Wick. Rousay has toured extensively across North America, booking 220 dates in 2017 alone. In 2018 she participated in the Sonic Transmissions Festival and NMASS Festival as well as performed at venues such as Elastic Arts and Issue Project Room. Her work recently received support from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts.

Rousay curates Contemporary Whatever, a monthly series for adventurous art in San Antonio; she also collaborated with Artpace to produce Right Now Festival in August 2017, which brought experimental and improvising performers to town from across Texas.

This event is free and open to the public.
On the Cusp, On the Cusp Of will be on display before and after the concert.
