A.V. Club Milwaukee
Let’s be honest: there’s only so much one can handle of winter, dark days, and all-around dismal gloom. So, as Milwaukee preps itself for the transformative properties only spring can bring, The A.V. Club presents its guide of Gallery Night (April 19-20) gigs that allow you to escape—even if just mentally—and remind you that place, time, and personality can always be re-imagined. Avant-garde diversions of fantasy, costumed imagination, and superhero-style alter egos—this is your chance to digress from the confines of reality. Regardless of fact or fiction, these Gallery Night artists visualize exactly what could, should, and can be.
• UWM’s Peck School of the Arts takes location and culture to heart as students re-imagine the East Side’s Avant Garde Coffeehouse of the ’60s. Employing photography, ephemera, video, sound, and live music performance, the show embodies the artists, performers, and regulars who dotted the coffeehouse’s changing scene for years. Find the show at the INOVA Gallery through May 12, Friday 5-9 p.m., Saturday 12-5p.m.
