Still from video documentation of Sean Carney's Abjackass
Almost as if to whet the city's palate in preparation for TBA, the White Box invites talented locals to fire away with pop-up-like shows/events each day this week. You might have already missed Lisa Radon today, but don't miss out on tomorrow's light workshop with Laura Hughes. Participants will be able to get their hands on some of the new phosphorescent materials she makes use of in her new work. With a depth of exploratory vision and a working knowledge of electronics, the clever Stephanie Simek presents a new sound experiment on Thursday. On Friday Wayne Bund performs as Feyonce, his queer appropriation of pop diva Beyonce. His character, the ephemera on view at Show and Tell, and his performance are intended to "challenge pop culture, radical feminism, and drag lineage"; it's a tough job, but someone has to do it. Then finally, on Saturday, catch some documentation of prior performances by the successfully abject Sean Joseph Patrick Carney and Michael Reinsch. Sean Carney will present video documentation of a 25-minute long performance that highlights the "links between the history of performance art and stunts by the members of Jackass." If you're faint at heart and looking to actually laugh while being challenged by popular culture, though, I would stick with the drag show.

Available to view online from tomorrow at noon through early September, Curiosity and Opportunity: Next Best Thing to Being There is a solo exhibition "in the form of a panoramic application. The resulting show features several existing objects and appropriated images that express the unity of art, technology and nature as form-finding processes based on curiosity and opportunity."
