Erotic City

5-10 p.m.
Art, Galleries
Soundset, a music festival organized by Rhymesayers Entertainment celebrating all things hip-hop, is happening this weekend. While the concerts will take place at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds, CO Exhibitions in northeast Minneapolis will be hosting an art party showcasing another form of expression closely connected to hip-hop: graffiti. "Erotic City" marks the second year for the exhibition, which includes work from 18 talented folks from around the country. While you can spot their work across the U.S. on buildings, subways, train cars, and sidewalks, on display this weekend will be more traditional pieces, such as paintings, drawings, and limited-edition prints. Check them out here and then spot the work in the wild. This isn't the only Soundset art show happening this evening, however. Over at the former First Tech space (2640 Hennepin Ave. S., Minneapolis) is "Headshots (Lightning Blend) RSE20," an exhibition by photographer Dan Monick and curator Kristoffer Knutson. Here you can check out behind-the-scenes images from Rhymesayers' 2015 20th-anniversary show at Target Center, recently found photography, prints, and limited-edition zines at the reception on Friday from 6 to 9 p.m. (artwork will be on display through Monday).
