5 Things To Do In The CWE This Weekend: May 20-23

From Late Night Happy Hour at Mission Taco Joint, to a Virtual Exhibition Tour at projects+gallery — here are five things to do this weekend in the Central West End.

Learn Why ‘Freedom is for Everybody’ | projects+gallery

Thursday, May 20
6 p.m.

Barrett Barrera Projects is pleased to announce ‘Freedom is for Everybody’ — a new exhibition of work by Swedish-American artist Michele Pred taking place at projects+gallery May 21—August 7, 2021.

Join Michele Pred and projects+gallery Senior Director Bridget Melloy for a virtual tour of the exhibition tonight at 6 p.m. on Instagram Live (@bb_projects).

In her artistic practice, Pred uses sculpture, assemblage and performance to uncover the cultural and political meaning behind everyday objects, with a concentration on feminist themes such as equal pay, reproductive rights, and personal security. As Pred’s work implores us, now more than ever we must raise our voices to protect the freedom of all bodies, especially those historically disempowered.
