    Elisabet Ney Museum: Suspension

    This is an immersive print installation by Liv Monique Johnson that invites the viewer to "explore an outcropping of wilderness where the weird may take place." It's an interactive work right there on the edge of the park, a space where screenprinted elements are combined with a variety of materials to create a lush setting of colorful foliage.

    grayDUCK Gallery: Findings

    Reminiscent of geologic formations, seeming like objects from a cabinet of natural curiosities, Bethany Johnson's intimate sculptures in this show offer a multilayered meditation on deep time, material metamorphosis, and the anthropogenic landscaping of landfills, quarries, and road cuts. These dimensional works are composed of plastics, paper, aluminum, fabric, rubber, foam, cardboard, and wood – densely bound together with pressure by a hidden, internal armature of screws and bolts – then trimmed and sanded to a smooth polish.

    Lydia Street Gallery: Persona

    Ric Nelson's innovative use of photography and video (as seen through the lens of fragmented glass) is spellbinding. "All mediums are possible with this man. They may be sliced and spliced together so you can’t figure out which way is up."

    Something Cool Studios: Veracity

    This show brings together work from Shanisia Person, exploring diverging aspects of gender, employing literal transparency to appose its place in the broader society with how it functions within the BDSM community; and Brent Pheto, populating his world with characters demonstrating the ubiquity of disempowerment through the raw emotions in everyday situations; and Cameron Gray, using materiality as a codex to unlock the ancestral spirit, selecting objects that often have violent connections to Blackness and repositioning their narrative.
