Selene Huff and Daniel Evans exhibition — Two shows here. Selene Huff’s Formed is a series of sculptures that explore the process of translating a formal system of composition into a moving meditation. The sculptures are reflections on how the artist’s body moves through space and interacts with other physical entities. You may also recall Daniel Evans’ Littoral Zone from last year’s dynamite show, Dyscorpia at Enterprize Square Gallery. Drawing upon selkie folktales as an allegorical lens, the work offers a space to explore the mediation between physical and digital worlds to interrogate the latent dynamics of power in an increasingly algorithmically driven existence. By appointment, email jwade1 (at) ualberta (dot) ca.
Details: noon – 5 p.m. at FAB Gallery (1-1 Fine Arts Building at U of A), no charge
Bad Buddyat Black Lodge — We keep writing about them because they’re so great. Foursome Bad Buddy is scrappy as hell and riled up with primal riffs, gang vocals and a whole lotta snarl. Expect a little bit of surf, a dash of Motown and plenty of rip. Bad Buddy is Emily Bachynski, Geoffrey O’Brien, Andi Vissia and Alex Vissia. The poppy/dreamy Sean Davis Newton opens the night at one of Edmonton’s very best, most cabin-comfy venues, just down the street from the heart of downtown.
Details: 7 p.m. at The Black Lodge (address given with purchase), $20 at theblacklodge.simpletix.ca
Clueless (1995): Amy Heckerling’s modern classic. Jane Austen never imagined that, like, her 1816 novel Emma would be turned into a fresh and satirical look at, like, ultra-rich teenagers in a Beverly Hills high school. Cher and Dionne are pampered upper-class girls who care less about getting good grades than wearing the right clothes and being as popular as possible. But Cher also has an innate urge to help those less fortunate, like the two introverted teachers she brings together and new geeky friend Tai, though her efforts sometimes make, like, a mess of things.
