AMOA-Arthouse is pleased to announce new exhibitions on view at the Jones Center.Jill Magid, Failed States
January 14–March 4, 2012
On January 21, 2010, 24-year-old Fausto Cardenas fired six shots from a small caliber handgun into the air from the steps of the Texas State Capitol, blocks from the site of this exhibition. Fausto’s motivations still remain unknown. Coincidentally, Jill Magid was present as a witness. Failed States is the artist’s exploration of coincidence, poetics, government power and bureaucracy. Magid draws connections between Fausto’s futile and tragic act and Goethe’s nineteenth-century epic poem, Faust.
