Everyday Use

Some people might try to convince you that there is art in the everyday. You might scoff and return to your spreadsheets. It's the same premise interdisciplinary artist Lauren Cross functions under, but she knows what she's looking for. Opening at the South Dallas Cultural Center (3400 S. Fitzhugh Ave.) this weekend, an exhibition of her work titled Everyday Use, "explores everyday objects and memories as artistic contributions to African American history and culture." She uses photography, video, and installation work, including everything from found family photos and sound recordings to weave together an exhibition interested in personal and shared histories. Cross is interested in the use of art as documentation, as cultural and familial preservation. See the work in opening reception at 5 p.m. Saturday or through April 25. Admission is free.
