Adaptation

On the eve of its 10-year anniversary, the Angstrom Gallery (3609 Parry Ave.) re-opens with Ab Ova, a show so conceptually bizarre it's worthy of a Charlie Kaufman screenplay. Fifty-seven artists (including Mike Kelley, Jim Shaw and Paul Noble) were involved in this project, where one group was given the MMPI (an industry-standard 567-question psychiatric test) and two others turned their results into illustrated "children’s books." This production is the brainchild of artist/curator Steven Hull, well-known for grand concepts such as this. Also on display will be works by Daniel Johnston, Ludwig Schwartz and other once and future Angstrom alumni. Ab Ova runs through October 23. Call 214-823-2456 or visit angstromgallery.com.
Sept. 28-Oct. 23
