In the "when you figure it out, let us in on it" category: This First Friday, March 1, between 7-10 p.m., Chicago-based artist Jen Talbot (pictured) will appear at Raleigh's LUMP gallery to present On the Dot
, a performance and instillation piece incorporating two women suspended from the ceiling by harnesses and dangling in front of their respective 9-foot painted bulls-eyes. During the performance, the performers will mark and clear each other's faces with 13-foot poles. The instillation also includes elements of photography and video. Art Institute of Chicago teacher Talbot will return March 16 and 30 for encore performances, giving you two more opportunities to figure out what it all means. Call 821-9999 for details.
