Event Info: (312) 455-1015 dragcity.com
For her second show at Drag City's Soccer Club Club, Chicago-based artist Lisa Alvarado presents her fringed banners incorporating fabric, embroidery and paint. The bold, double-sided tapestries are both formal in their references to ceremonial crafts, such as indigenous banner-making, as well as colorfully abstract. Natural Information Society performs the night of the opening, and Bitchin' Bajas plays the closing reception. Both are catered by Land and Sea Department.
