    Beerthoven Goggles

    Wait, what? Yes, Daniel Swayze and his Beerthoven cabal are plunging into the world of virtual reality! That is, they've made 360-degree films of more than an hour of music from two Beerthoven programs – Sacred and Profane, featuring a brass quintet performance, and those goldenthroated Tinsel Singers sharing favorite songs for the holidays, and both shows captured on the steps of the historic Neill-Cochran House – and now they're presenting this seasonal extravaganza to you with a VR headset (Pico G2 4K) delivered direct to your home for complete immersion. Bonus: Scenes from the Austin Trail of Lights. See website for details.
    Through Jan. 10. $30.

    Engendered Species

    This new project from renowned photographer Rino Pizzi (in collaboration with an impressive slate of local artists) consists of a series of photographic portraits of heterosexual couples as they impersonate each other – their body posture, facial expressions, clothing, and the way they express their relation to each other, thus addressing issues of gender identity and relations as they emerge in a personal setting.
    Through Jan. 15. Free.

    Northern-Southern: Baton

    This is a group show by relay, begun in July of 2020 as a method of socially distancing a community in the height of the pandemic: Artists took turns alone in the space, each adding to the exhibition. Now, as it nears its close, the exhibition resembles a community in which work converses and overlaps. With Adreon Henry, Vy Ngo, Dawn Okoro, Leon Alesi, Matt Steinke, Sev Coursen, Stella Alesi, and more.
    Closing reception: Sat., July 24, 3-9pm
