Here are a few things opening in the next seven days that caught our eye.
Giorgio de Chirico, Melancholia, 1916
Silence at the Menil, opens today, Thursday, July 26. Features Joseph Beuys, Marcel Broodthaers, John Cage, Marcel Duchamp, David Hammons, Tehching Hsieh, Jennie C. Jones, Jacob Kirkegaard, René Magritte, Mark Manders, Christian Marclay, Robert Morris, Bruce Nauman, Max Neuhaus, Robert Rauschenberg, Doris Salcedo, Tino Sehgal, and others. (And presumably de Chirico is part of the show since Melancholia is used to illustrate the web page for Silence.)
Sigur Rós: INNI at the Aurora Picture Show, Friday July 7, 7 pm (screening at 8 pm). This is going to include Two Star Symphony as the warm-up act. I'm not sure how to describe Sigur Rós, so I decided to outsource that task to the hive-mind of Google search:
Well, OK. Maybe that wasn't a good idea. Let's just say Sigur Rós is post-minimalist prog rock. (Don't forget that the Aurora Picture Show is now at 2442 Bartlett.)
For no particular reason, here is a Two Star Symphony sticker.
Drawings and Air Conditioning at Front Gallery, opens Saturday, July 28, 5 pm to 7 pm. Features Michael Blair, Biff Bolen, Clarence Chun, Megan Harrison and Erin Hunt.
Naked Tutu-Tuesday at Notsuoh featuring Cello Fury on Tuesday (duh), July 31, 7 pm. Performance art and nudity (two great things that go great together) upstairs at Notsuoh. "Bring your naked self and your Tutus to Notsuoh on Tuesday July 31st for an evening of ballet, music, and audience participatory performance art featuring Cello Fury from Pittsburg, PA and Continuum, a local Houston performance art troupe (who will also lead a movement workshop)."
