    Northern-Southern: To

    Have we mentioned how we can't even with this Phillip Niemeyer and his Northern-Southern gallery? And that we mean that in a good way? Listen: While the artistic takeover called Baton continues in the N-S venue on East 12th, here comes another wide-ranging project set in and around the city itself, a group show of paths and directions considered as art experience – installed outdoors, in semi-wild public spaces across Austin and beyond. This show encompasses "audio tours, trails, portals, sculpture, digital media, instructions, new landmarks, wayfinding marks, sibyls, remote running sessions, and care stations." And the artists providing this panoply of discovery? Adreon Denson Henry, Alyssa Taylor Wendt, Amanda Julia Steinback, Amy Scofield & Lisa Hallee, Emma Hadzi Antich, Laura Latimer, Chris Lyons, Ted Carey, Sean Ripple, Staci Maloney & Michelle Smolensky, Tammy West, and Zoe Berg. Recommended. Five stars. 10/10. Get out of the house and remap your territory!
