Coming Up: Strip Poker in a Storefront Window

Matthew Northridge’s “Pictures by Wire and Wireless” at Kansas Gallery. “Matthew Northridge’s work is equal parts play and order. He assembles patterns and structure that explore a vast, visual landscape through cultural ephemera. Whether composed of variable units in space or networks on paper, rules are created and systems developed, in the process collapsing architecture and geographic expanses into discreet compositions.”

A previous Pen Parentis event

Books vended by Bluestockings for signings. Readings. Conversation. Wine.”

At the end of each round, the players will get dressed and begin again, creating a meditative repetitious action that continues over the course of a workday.”
