Question Who Really is the Fool?

As winner of New Times’ Best Curator award, there is no doubt that Pembroke Pines’ special-events curator, Jill Slaughter, knows how to put on a show. Last year, she staged the kind of enlightening and thought-provoking exhibits at Pembroke Pines’ Studio 18 that’s not seen too often in the western Broward suburbs. This Friday, Slaughter brings us yet another provocative show, titled “Who’s Fooling Who,” in which she tackles the subject of domestic abuse. Described as an exploration of the deceptive, artists of every medium, including painters, sculptors, fiber and installation artists, and even spoken-word performers will invite audiences to actively participate in their work and reexamine expectations. This all ties into domestic abuse support organization No More Tears, which will be on hand sharing its story of how it helps quell the negative impressions that circulate around victims of domestic abuse. All proceeds raised this night will benefit No More Tears. This engaging and illuminating exhibit opens Friday from 7 to 10 p.m. and runs through February 19, taking place at Studio 18, located at 101 Poinciana Drive in Pembroke Pines. Free to attend.
