Lap Le, an artist in the UALR exhibition "Sigh-Fi," which gallery curator Brad Cushman a press release describes as a show that "embraces the cognitive dissonance that underscores science fiction," will give a talk at 6 p.m. tonight in Room 161 of the Fine Arts Center.

Gallery I has been retrofitted by architect Aaron Jones for the exhibit, which also includes work by Hartmut Austen, Anne Libby, Sondra Perry, Martine Syms and Tan Zich, that Cushman the press release says "manipulates relationships between architectural volume and contemporary art."

Perry's work in the show was previously exhibited at The Kitchen in New York. In its review of the show, "Resident Evil," Artforum magazine called the work a "crucial" examination of "systemic, racialized violence and viscous identities under surveillance." Read about Martine Syms' work in this L.A. Times review, more about Aaron Jones here, Anne Libby here and Hartmut Austen here.

"Sigh-Fi" is curated by Haynes Riley, founder of the Good Weather Gallery in North Little Rock.
