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.

    Contrary to rumor, Live Life Chill, the bar/restaurant in the erstwhile Revolution Taco and Tequila Lounge space at the corner of Cantrell and President Clinton Avenue, is not closed. Service manager Lindsey McFadin called the Times this afternoon to say a rumor the bar had closed was killing business; by 3 p.m., no one had been in. The Times, too, had heard the rumor from a number of sources. What has changed, McFadin said, is that the bar is now only open from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.
