This event will feature performances by a selection of musicians working with ambient sound, looping and experimentation with electronic instruments. The performance will include a portion of improvisation which will interact with the current exhibition. This exhibition is a continuation of the curatorial and community project formerly known as Ice Cream Social.

Carapace Pierced is a solo exhibition of recent work by Margaret Pinto. It explores the theme of armored bodies, investigating the relationships between fear, protection, vulnerability, and violence. Visual reference is drawn from medieval armor, riot gear, cages, and fencing as well as myriad forms of armor in the natural world such as crab shells, thorns, and insect casings. This work simultaneously celebrates and interrogates the outer shell as a potent metaphor for emotional states of separation from our environment. Depictions of nets and veils are interwoven into this content. These permeable barriers present a secondary mode of containment, obscuring, concealing and trapping their subjects. Translucent, layered and complex surfaces are an invitation for viewers to look more closely, delve deeper into the spaces and objects around them and address the unconscious “veils” which obscure their own view of the world around them.
