Now here's a concept. The latest SOOlocal show, "Weird Neighbor," is an "un-curated" exhibition by "Slovenian art theorist Ecurb Alopat" (a.k.a. the show's organizer Bruce Tapola's name in reverse). It boasts small works by 52 artists hung to exist, in brilliant juxtaposition, with their neighbors. A riot of media and meaning, the show includes pieces from Ute Bertog and Allen Brewer, Andrea Carlson and Alexa Morochowski, and Melba Price and Joe Sinness. Is SOOlocal, sandwiched between Pat's Tap and Honeycomb Salon, making a preemptive ontological statement about its own existence with this show? Most likely, and delightfully so. There will be an opening reception from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, January 11. (Jesse Peterson, Uh Huh)
Saturdays, Sundays, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Starts: Jan. 11. Continues through March 2, 2014
