Saturday, the power of man over beast and the power over self will be on display. Stop at the round purple signs in downtown Fort Lauderdale and you will have found yourself at Art Fallout 2010, a large, inaugural, multivenue art event hosted by the Girls Club in which a free bus takes you to each venue. At the artist-run 1310 Gallery (1310 SW Second Court, Fort Lauderdale), youll take in the new exhibit The Myth of Power, for which artist Lisa Rockford selected more than 40 regional artists to supply enough conceptions of power from strength and heroism to social doctrine and racial inequity to cover three floors. For Saturday only, performance art will be presented alongside all the sculpture, painting, mixed media, site-specific installation, and video art. Awards will be handed out for innovation, and artwork will be for sale.
Nearby, 18 Rabbit Gallery (17 NW Fifth St., Fort Lauderdale) will display Altered States, a multimedia exhibit that examines the mind-body relationship. At the Museum of Art|Fort Lauderdale (1 E. Las Olas Blvd.), take in The Pearl and Stanley Goodman Latin American Collection and Recent Acquisitions From the Museums Latin American Collection. This entire event runs from 5 to 8 p.m. and is free. Visit girlsclub.org.
Also, a heads-up: The lecture Contemporary Art and the Critique of Capitalism by Lisa Rockford will take place at the North Regional Library on November 5, when there will also be free film screenings next door at the gallery at the Historical Commission Building.
