VBB (Voices Breaking Boundaries) continues its Living Room Art series this evening at the home of John Pluecker, 5036 Jefferson St, Houston. New site-specific installations by Jorge Galvan and Donna Huanca. 7 pm. FREE.
Dancers from Nayikas, a New York-based classical Indian Odissi dance theater company, will interact with [Houston artist Molly] Gochman's steel sculptures as part of a performance during the [EnGendered] festival.
Q: How did you come to be in this festival? I understand that you're the only non-Asian participating.
A: They wanted an outside perspective. It's in New York, so having an American perspective was a desire. The visual-arts component of the festival is called Pardah, which means unveiling.
My work usually deals with fabric and, conceptually, my work challenges boundaries. Gender issues are brought up in my work. The theme of the show addresses the complex realities of gender and sexuality in contemporary South Asia.

Also I just ate an entire sleeve of Hostess Chocolate Donuts...excuse me, "donettes" according to the discarded packaging. I don't feel so good.
I know the starting plans:
We're meeting at the Pearl Bar on Washington Ave at 4.
Bring your bike, skate, wahatever you need to roll with us and 10 bucks for the donation! I can't wait to see everyone! I'm very excited and hope this goes smoothly, but how can it not with plenty of beer and our amazing group of friends?
