Third Coast Activist Movie Night: The Trials of Muhammad Ali

Instead of a boxing film, this documentary focuses on the tougher bouts fought by Ali: his decision to join the Nation of Islam, his battle to overturn a five-year prison sentence for refusing U.S. military service, and his struggle with Parkinson’s.

    Artist Jamie Rhodes, recently diagnosed with a severe allergy to the common alloy nickel, presents a collection of vivid photographs of things she can no longer safely touch. Printed large and glossy on sheets of aluminum and separated by pairs of the gloves Rhodes must constantly wear, this series greets the eyes with a bold Whasssup, human? and interrogates the complexities of flesh. Through July 20.

  • Wally Workman Gallery: A Place Beyond

    We're going to recommended this show above all others in town right now, because what figurative painters Sara and Shane Scribner have rendered in oils on panel is about as gorgeous as art can be when it's also a little unsettling, a little Shirley Jackson-wise creepy and compelling, and this collection of originals puts a fine shadowy chill into summer's fiery onslaught. Through Aug. 2.

    Wally Workman Gallery, 1202 W. Sixth, 512/472-7428
