It's a punch line, it's a theological argument, it's about life and death and the cycles of both: What came first? Decorazon Gallery approaches the circle of life--both natural and inflicted--as well as rebirth, with a group photography exhibition, What Came First?, featuring Minmyo Kim, Alex Leme and Jane Fulton Alt. Kim takes on "unavoidable death" and offers viewers a chance to be reborn through her bleak and beautiful farm photos. Leme's series of egg-related works addresses all the various meanings connoted by ova. Alt, having worked with the "Look and Leave" program in the post-Katrina Ninth Ward, showcases destruction and the prospect of rebirth with direct relation to familiar humanity. The show hangs for its last weekend (through Monday) before another exhibition is born within the Decorazon Gallery, 417 N. Bishop Ave. Call 214-946-1003 or visit decorazongallery.com.
