And then there's POP JAPAN, curated by Guzu Gallery's own Vincent X. Torres, presenting an array of notable characters from Japanese television, film, anime, and manga.

    Lora Reynolds Gallery: Listening Closely

    Where do we come from? Where are we going? Is there a bigger something out there that will always be out of reach? (And what might it mean to try to connect with it?) The artists in this show listen closely to their materials, history, the land, and the stars – and often end up hearing things they did not expect. Bonus: New works by Jong Oh in the Project Room.
    Through March 23

    The Contemporary Austin: Paper Dance

    This is both a dynamic retrospective spanning 30 years of photographs and sculptures by Janine Antoni and a solo dance performance by the artist developed collaboratively with pioneering dancer and choreographer Anna Halprin. Antoni performs 15 times throughout the exhibition for an intimate audience, exploring the materiality of brown paper and responding to her own artwork within the gallery. (Click here for schedule.) On view during museum hours, the artist and art handlers will pack, unpack, and reinstall the work, before and after performances.

    Art In Public Places: Launchpad

    Have you always wanted to create a work of public art for Austin but weren't sure how to get started?

Through the partnership, you'll work on everything from materials research and fabrication to public outreach, while providing a service doing what you love. Also, $15,000 for your work on the project. See website for details.
