Teardowns Performance Evening featuring David Hurlin and Laeree

Saturday, December 7, 2019 | 7-8pm

Please join Blue Star Contemporary and exhibiting artist Joey Fauerso for a special evening of performance activating her exhibition Teardowns currently on view in BSC’s Main Gallery. The event features performance artist Laeree and musician David Hurlin. This will also be a special opportunity to talk with Fauerso in person about her work on view.

David Hurlin is a professional drummer and percussionist. Drummer for Apocalypso Tantric Noise Choir, Soulmath, Elizabeth Moen, Annalibera, and most recently with The Mike Dillon Band, he has toured all over the country and is in high demand, both as a performer and session drummer. He is working on drum performances and collaborations which lean more toward sound art/sculpture and performance art.

David received his BFA in photography and tabla (Hindustani classical music tradition) from Maharishi University, including seven months abroad in India. His photography took him around the United States photographing his favorite poets – James Tate, Charles Wright, Kim Addonizio, and Cole Swenson, to name a few – which deeply informed his reading and writing of poetry.  He took graduate poetry workshops in support of his degree and was involved for a decade with the Monday Night Poets led by his mentor, Diane Frank.

David lives in Fairfield, Iowa with his wife Emily, his son Dil, dog Mochi, cat Monarch, African Leopard tortoise Tortellini, 15 chickens, and 3 ducks.

Laeree is a visual and performance artist based in San Antonio, Texas. A graduate of Texas State University in San Marcos, TX, Laeree explores themes of identity, theatre, digital culture, romanticism, desire, fantasy, and gender, while advocating and creating space for LGBTQIA communities. Laeree has worked in collaboration with Teardowns artist Joey Fauerso to activate artworks in the exhibition and can be seen featured in videos on view in the exhibition.
