Leonardo Drew 

When: Fri., March 3, 6-9 p.m. 2017

CAM Raleigh augments two spring exhibits already on view with a third that likewise mingles gallery space with the wider world. Brooklyn-based artist Leonardo Drew's new site-specific installation in the main gallery is made of locally sourced natural and artificial debris. Using the effects of hurricanes on North Carolina as a reference point, it happens to be a perfect, chaotic complement to Patrick Dougherty's contemplative new stickwork in Durham (see p. 28)—both installations let native materials lead the way. At CAM, Drew's work joins Mathew Curran's exhibit, Without War Paint, in which a large mural and cut stencils blend graphic-design training with a street-art habit, and Boris Bidjan Saberi's 0-11, the first museum showing of the Barcelona-based experimental fashion designer's unwearable garments, which represent the art behind his Paris runway collections. Try on all these porous exhibits at once on First Friday. —Brian Howe
