    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.

    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

    Our Lady of the Sacred Part: Vulva Pope

    Marina DeYoe-Pedraza's reverently irreverent ceremony celebrates the feminine and the divine and addresses systemic issues that women experience – in healthcare, sexism, and sex education (or the lack thereof) – the whole vivid production accomplished via object puppetry, readings from historical badass chingonas, and a full Mass service. Note: The passcode and link for the online player will be emailed to you upon purchase. (This is like an in-person show: You must be prepared to watch at 8pm on your selected date.)
    Through Jan. 24. Fri.-Sun., 8pm. $5.
