    Northern-Southern: Baton

    You know, right, that Northern-Southern's had a lot going on in this pandemic? In addition to the various artworks lying in wait throughout the city of Austin via "Left In Leaves" and "Where Is Here" … in addition to virtually hosting the weekly brilliances of first Laura Lit and now Drew Liverman … the actual N-S gallery space has been turned into an ever-evolving installation called Baton by a series of artists working in turn. Listen: "An artist is given a key to the space, a baton. With it they may take their turn installing artwork in the gallery. An artist finishes their turn when they pass the key. The next artist will then have the run of the space. They will confront the work of the previous artists as the leave-behinds of a prior civilization: to honor, remove, build around, relocate, or cover up." Phillip Niemeyer and Rachel Freeman started things off in July, then passed the baton to Emily Lee. Stella Alesi took over in late August, followed by James Turner. Jimmy Luu and Tyeschea West added to the show in September. In October, it was Transmountain Design and Vy Ngo with the Baton. Coming up next: Ryan Sandison Montgomery, Matthew Steinke, and Dawn Okoro. Whoa, damn.

    Umlauf Sculpture Garden

    The Umlauf reopens its famed Garden to the general public. There won’t be any performances going on yet, as occasionally delighted crowds in the Before Times, but there will be all those expertly wrought sculptures, the bronze or stone cynosures from Charles Umlauf and others anchoring sight among the bright gardenscapes and tree-towered paths: Perfect for a strolling, fresh-air respite from yet another screenful of pixels in your all-too-familiar abode.: Note: The usual safety measures will be in effect: A limit of 30 visitors in the garden at a time; a one-way marked path to follow; masks and social distancing strongly encouraged; etc. (You know the routine: You’re an old hand at this pandemic shit by now, right?) Also, know that the Umlauf’s private-event rentals will resume with limited capacity set by local and state guidelines – and its summer camp program will proceed with those restrictions in mind, too.: See the museum’s website for details and to schedule an appointment.

    Virtual Hideout: Maestro

    This is an all-improvised battle royal, featuring the most ornery cusses in the scene doing their damnedest to emerge victorious from a mindwarping multiplayer fray. Imagine: A screen crowded with Zoomers, competing in short improv games and wild-ass gambits to be crowned the one and only Maestro for the week. Sound good? Yeah – we like it, too.

    Wonderspaces

    Wonderspaces is "a new art show designed for a broad audience," featuring 12 installations from artists from around the world, now glorifying one 28,000-square-foot venue. And new artwork will rotate in starting this fall, is the deal – thus turning the space into "an ever-changing stream of extraordinary art." Of course, the most important question here is, "Is it Insta-worthy? Oh God, my dear lord, please, please let it be Insta-worthy!" Yes, yes, darlings: It's Insta-worthy AF. Mmmmkay? Now don't forget to mask up, slather some sanitizer, and be safe.
