    Akirash Online

    Sure, Austin's Olaniyi Rasheed Akindiya aka AKIRASH has an exhibition at the Carver Museum right now – and the place is closed, of course. But this Lagos-born artist also happens to have one of the most robust websites around, though you'll need a mighty big screen to get the best effect of his huge and colorful mixed-media creations and performance pieces.

    Blanton Museum of Art: MemWars

    Many artists work in multiple mediums, but for Lubbock-raised Terry Allen, music, performance, writing, and visual artwork are truly all part of the same practice. As a visual artist, he often creates immersive sculptural installations with an aspect of performance, incorporated through projections and video. For this ninth installment in the Blanton’s Contemporary Project series, Allen reveals a three-channel video installation and a related group of drawings.

    Books

    Books, Books, Books in ATX

    Don’t forget, citizen: The best place to get your reading material is from Austin’s own Malvern Books or Half Price Books or Black Pearl Books or BookPeople or BookWoman stores – in person or online. (And for the ultimate in vintage collectors’ editions and unique works on paper, we recommend the excellent South Congress Books.)Or try Bookshop.org in general – because Bookshop, unlike the online behemoth named after a river, shares the profits among all its independent-bookstore members.
