Go Ahead, Show It All Off at ShowOff 3.0

By Lisa Barrow [ Thu Feb 20 2014 2:00 AM ]

And the blue ribbon for a whizz-bang good time goes to Emerge ABQ, who’ve assembled a night of artistry at full tilt, “inspired by the talent shows and science fairs of our youth.” For ShowOff 3.0: Hypothesis Unknown, the arts council volunteers have corralled a heady array of entertainers, booths, exhibits and participatory projects into Downtown venue ArtBar (119 Gold SW). Look for the Amsterdam Ham Collective and their cabine photographique, talented aerialist Kaeti Frady in graceful contortions, an installation from Hand Eye Collective, plus music, dance, poetry, silk screen printing and quasi-science projects. RSVP at bit.ly/emergeabq for free entry, or buy a monthly membership to ArtBar for five bucks at the door. But consider pitching in a bit more—the organizers suggest $15—because 75 percent of contributions will go to the National Institute of Flamenco, still recovering from that craptacular fire last December. Nurture the arts and hobnob with the doers, movers and shakers at this 21-and-up event tomorrow at 7:30pm. ArtBar • Fri Feb 21 • 7:30pm • Donations accepted • View on Alibi calendar
