Strawberry Mansion at Grand Illusion

This movie takes place in this near future version where your dreams are taxed and have product placement. It follows a dream listener tasked with going through the memories and dreams of an 80-year-old woman who avoided getting taxed for years. There are a lot of interesting textures and decors. It’s being hailed as a future cult classic.

Two new exhibitions at the Frye Art Museum

Los Angeles-based painter Christina Quarles makes beautiful renderings of bodies in different shapes and positions. She uses garish colors like neon green and this weird flesh pink to create limbs that are positioned all over the place.

Christopher Paul Jordan and Arnaldo James have a joint exhibition titled In the meantime: ritual ground for a future black archive. There are paintings and photographic elements, but there is a sound booth in the middle where visitors of African descent are invited to record their prophecies and visions of the future. These files will then be encrypted in another file. The key to this encrypted file will be buried in a time capsule on the grounds of Frye that will be opened in 100 years.

10s Across the Board drag competition at queer/bar

It’s truly unique in that there will be 10 queens, 10 weeks, no eliminations, no judging panels, and no themes. For 10 weeks, 10 of the best queens in town parade and perform. At the end of each show, people will vote for their favorites. After 10 weeks, whoever has the most votes walks away with the grand prize of $7,500. Definitely bring your own and have a great time this Sunday.
