Join for the opening reception of Jane Alexander: Surveys (from the Cape of Good Hope), the artist's first solo show in North America. The exhibition features the South African artist's lauded site-specific tableaux alongside sculptures and photomontages.

Alexander is best known for her sculptural installations populated by hybrid mutants who seem to exist on a border between human and other forms of animal life. Mapping human behavior, its forces, prejudices and accomplishments, Alexander stages evocative scenes that introduce opportunities to address complex social relations.

Derek Jones and Josh Zulu present music by DJ Melodic. Enjoy delicious savory treats with Ladybird Food Truck and then cool off for dessert with popsicles by the goodie box (cash and card accepted). The opening reception is sponsored by Grand Prize Bar, providing an on-site cash bar.
