Have you noticed that there is much discussion of “awareness” as something that must be aspired to? As if, we as humans have lost our natural capacity to be aware of our surroundings or more vital, the impending threat of danger. We install alarm systems to awaken us, as though the crash of a glass window breaking won't be enough, or fire alarms to alert us to a room filled with smoke. It's as though our lives have grown so comfortable we won't recognize danger even when we're looking directly at it. The art on display at The Power Station (3816 Commerce St.) in Emergency Measures this weekend is meant to shake us out our this nascent fog and explore what it means to “trigger” awareness. Artists on display include Rodney Graham, Jill Magid, Mark Manders, and others. See it in opening reception from 7-9 p.m. Saturday. Admission is free. More at powerstationdallas.com.
