QUOCTRUNG NGUYEN: SPACE OF OTHERNESS

The painter Quoctrung Nguyen swirls his experience as a migrant into elegant abstractions in Space of Otherness, his new show in the Durham Arts Council's Allenton Gallery. Works like "Utopia III" and "Heterotopia" suggest overlapping prints from the coats of fantastic animals, with textures furred, mottled, and fluid drawn into chaotic harmonies. Nguyen shares a Third Friday opening reception with two more new DAC shows: Lauren Jones Worth's Avant-Gardens in the Semans Gallery and Moriah LeFebvre's Hometown (Inherited) in the Pratt Gallery, which sticks around through Oct. 2 after the other two shows close Sept. 19. —Brian Howe
