    Fancy Fancy Studios: Audiobiography

    Swing by this Eastside venue for a post-apocalyptic cup of coffee (!?) and a self-guided tour through "a surreal house of memory, grief, and floating bubbles" as author and multimedia artist Jamaica Cole presents her first book, The Endlessly Forking Snake Tongue, in audio and installation form. Local, lovely, and recommended.

    Testsite: How a House Works

    This collaboration between artist Andy Coolquitt and writer and editor Alix Browne is revealed via a performance that pays tribute to the house. It's a birthday party for the house – for the remodel of the house, specifically – the house that, in 1981-82, Laurence Miller hired Renfro and Steinbomer architects to design the changes and/or additions to. Suggestions: Come dressed as your favorite po-mo architect! Bring a period-inspired potluck dish! (King Ranch Chicken, anyone?) And then toasts will commence and there'll be docent-led tours of small groups donning booties to view the second-floor rooms and the yellow-tiled guest bathroom. So maybe don't miss the reception, we're saying.
    Reception: Sun., Feb. 23, 3-6pm
