    ICOSA: Rhumb Line

    New work by Amy Bench and Jenn Wilson explores how narratives are structured: always appearing to move forward, yet occasionally twisting and bending, obscuring parts of the story. Filmmaker Bench addresses the often contradictory feelings associated with childbirth and early motherhood; painter Wilson invokes narrative via weaving stills from bygone television flops, found photography, memories, comic panels, and images from Song dynasty scrolls.

    Northern-Southern: Inland Beach Ball

    Objects as feelings? Sunbeams from broken devices, breezes through screen doors – an August frisson, thrilling this intimate Eastside space with a group show by Sev Coursen, Michael Hambouz, Christine Heindl, Candace Hicks, Amanda Julia Steinback, Phillip Niemeyer, and James Turner.

    Recspec Gallery: The Nude Show

    That excellent Austin gallery, gone missing since the old Flatbed World HQ closed months ago? It's popping up at MOHA with a new show about "nude, as a color, as its cultural perception finally shifts away from the upsetting pinky Band-aid and crayon-box infamy." Curated by Holly Bobisuthi (who is, did you know, the most exciting jewelry maker in this city if not the entire goddam state) and featuring diverse work by artists from all over the country (and Spain), this is an exhibition sure to open wide in delight any previously jaded eyes.
