    grayDUCK Gallery: Misread Signs

    This exhibition of new work and performances by Yuliya Lanina explores the effects of trauma on the human psyche, the exhibition beginning with her signature paintings of collaged, malformed characters that later come to life in a three-channel, immersive animation. You know how some artists can burn pretty brightly? Lanina is gonna be, as usual, on fire. Recommended.
    Reception: Fri., April 26, 7-10pm

    Women & Their Work: Horizonland

    Rosa Nussbaum’s new exhibition is informed by her recent years in Texas. Unable to drive and finding herself as a passenger in a car, the artist reflects upon how public space in Texas is often imagined as a place for mobile private space, structuring her show as a kind of theme park – using sculpture, performance, video, and a slideshow to explore how the car becomes a lens that focuses and reshapes the world around her.
    Reception: Sat., April 27, 7-9pm
