Hallwalls will present Deborah Stratman: Swallows on view May 16th through June 27th. The artist will employ multiple media in the exhibition, transforming the gallery into a temporary sinkhole museum complete with diagrams, wall texts, dioramas, videos and sculptural elements gathered in an exploration of both naturally occurring and man-made chasms:

Printed Matter will host a Launch and Book Signing on May 15th for Marlo Pascual by Hassla Books. From Printed Matter’s website, “Marlo Pascual’s interest lies in the construction of the image. For the foundation of her first book, Pascual uses repetition to trace an image’s transformation between mediums as it moves from found image, to collage, to object, to installation, and then back into a book form.” :


Opening May 24th, MOCA Tucson will welcome IUD: Bakerman. Individually, Lizzi Bougatos, Sadie Laska, and Spencer Sweeney operate as visual artists and musicians. All three are painters who have shown at various New York and international galleries and museums, and all are involved with experimental musical projects.  Bougatos is notable as the leader of the long-running electronic neo-psychedelic band Gang Gang Dance, and Sweeney is a DJ and part-owner of Santos Party House in New York.  Laska is gaining significant critical attention for her paintings and works on paper, shown recently at NADA and Kerry Schuss. At MOCA Tucson, IUD will occupy the East Wing galleries and turn them into temporary experimental studio space where they will produce installations and paintings from both traditional and scavenged materials that have become IUD’s hallmark production M.O.:
