Space Is the Place

RICHARD SPEER
Wednesday April 24
Disjecta
8371 N Interstate Ave.
 
Architectural space meets space of the “final frontier” kind in Disjecta’s lively group exhibition, Space Is the Place. Artists Guillermo Gómez-Peña, David Huffman, Wendy Red Star and Saya Woolfalk offer up cheeky paintings, sculptures, costumes and a video installation in the style known as “Afro-futurism.” Basketballs are a recurring motif, stacked in a pyramidal sculpture and used in a geometric abstract painting that’s not quite abstract after all; each of the tiny circles in the composition, upon close inspection, reveals itself as a miniature depiction of a basketball. The show is wittily co-curated by Josephine Zarkovich and Elizabeth Spavento. Through April 28.
