SATURDAY:

Alex M. Petersen: In the Future We'll All Be Happy
Despite what the show’s title implies, the future that Alex M. Petersen hypothesizes is fairly dystopian. In graphite drawings and acrylic paintings, he considers a post-human world where the inhabitants have inherited our waste and the damage we’ve done to the environment. These mural-sized installations examine queer voices and those on the fringe, while featuring Minnesota flora and fauna, and speculative technology. “Without Us,” a show featuring work by Sophia Heymans, also examines a world after we’re gone. See both exhibitions at the opening reception on Saturday, November 10, from 6 to 9 p.m. Free. Soo Visual Arts Center, 2909 Bryant Ave. S., Minneapolis; 612-871-2263. –Jessica Armbruster
