May 10th, 6-11 pm

To have kids or not to have kids? That is the question.

Artists, musicians, dancers, and writers reflect on the decision whether or not to have kids, as well as when that decision doesn’t go as planned. Half of the visual artists and performers in this show have kids, and half do not. They will be joined by a visiting artist from Toronto, Shelia Heti, who writes uncategorizable novels. Her latest, Motherhood, is about whether making art can substitute for making human beings.

Performances by: Christi Cruz, Christopher Frizzelle, Angela Garbes, Sheila Heti, Ken Jarvey, Rachel Kessler, Sarah Paul Ocampo, OK SWEETHEART, Lisa Prank, Anastacia Reneé, Sarah Rudinoff, and Uh-Oh.

Visual art by: John Atkins, Aaron Bagley, Jessixa Bagley, Ben Beres, Michael Colasurdo, Jeff Gardner, Marie Hausauer, Rachel Kessler, Craig Kundiff, Brittany Kusa, Amanda Manitach, Timothy Rysdyke, Tara Thomas, Joey Veltkamp, and Jennifer Zwick.

Hosted by Kyle Bain.

KIDS/NO KIDS will also feature interactive activities and a variety of other surprises we haven’t quite given birth to yet.

Art preview 6-8pm. Doors at 8pm, show at 9pm. $5 - $10 suggested donation.
