Art, Both Performance and, Uh, Not @ DiverseWorks This Fri. [11/05/2007 11:33:00 PM]:
Naysayers be damned, I'll swear 'til my dying/moving day that there's way, way
more to do in this city than most folks think; more, in fact, than this paltry blog/site can ever hope to cover. Which is why, sadly, we kinda seem to zip right past all the awesomely neat stuff that goes on up at DiverseWorks
-- sorry 'bout that, y'all...
At any rate, in a tentative step towards rectifying that situation, I just wanted to mention a cool-sounding art opening DW will be having this coming Friday, November 9th. It's sponsored by the ever-faithful Friends (well, "Friend," anyway) of SCR over at Houston Calling, which in itself is a pretty hearty recommendation, esp. for an art opening.
Actually, it's two art openings in one, apparently -- on the "static" side of things, the gallery will be showcasing line drawings done by weirdo-folk musician/artist Devendra Banhart, in an exhibit called Some Drawings. Banhart himself won't be there, I hear, but the man's art will be, and if it's anything like his music, it'll be intriguing, to say the least.
The "dynamic" part of the dual-opening extravaganza is a performance art piece by a woman named Claude Wampler called PERFORMANCE (career ender). I've got no clue what it'll be like, but there's supposedly a heavy audience participation element, and from what I've seen of stuff like this in the past, it's bound to be something to see/experience. Go check it out if you get a chance (the performances are at 8PM & 10PM, and the opening's from 6-8PM).
