360 Speaker Series: Edmund de Waal
Bestselling author and artist Edmund de Waal speaks in conjunction with his new book, The White Road, an intimate narrative history of porcelain structured around five journeys through landscapes where porcelain was dreamed about, fired, refined, collected, and coveted.
Nasher Sculpture Center, 2001 Flora Street
Keith Carter: Ghostland
Five years ago, a rare form of eye cancer altered Keith Carter’s vision in one eye, inspiring him to translate what he sees into his new work. Carter uses archaic lenses and photographic processes to create mythical imagery of the animal world and folklore.
The show will include a combination of tintypes; large pigment prints; and traditional gelatin silver prints.
PDNB Gallery, 1202 Dragon Street, Ste. 103
5 to 8 p.m.
W. Tucker: Box, Boxing, Boxed
Roberto Munguia: Eternityest One
Lily Hanson: The Once Over Twice
Austin based artist W. Tucker’s drawings tell two stories; one is of the found materials he works on; the second is the idiosyncratic cast of characters he draws onto these materials. In addition to the two-dimensional work, Tucker will work on site, spending three to five days and nights, drawing and painting directly onto the gallery walls. Roberto Munguia will exhibit twenty-four new works on paper and prints that showcase the artist’s ongoing investigations with wax, ink and paint. Named for the LA punk band, X’s song of the same name, The Once Over Twice describes a certain particularity in the studio with which Lily Hanson began conceptualizing the exhibition. The show’s title and the works in it describe and reflect Hanson’s approach, with each sculpture getting the “the once over twice.”

Michael Corris: Emblems
In this exhibition of monotypes, Michael Corris explores the rich conversation between text and image in art and visual culture by pairing the printed image with the palette of pigments used to create the original painting.
Liliana Bloch Gallery, 2271 Monitor Street
6 to 9 p.m.
Curated by gallery artist Clark Goolsby, Mysterious Muck focuses on artists whose work combines seemingly unrelated imagery, materials, environments (virtual or physical), and abstract forms to illuminate the loss of context in the internet-age. Some works attempt to reorder this disparate content and provide us a new logic with which to understand it, while others revel in chaos and confusion. Exhibiting artists include Nick van Woert; Evan Gruzis; Matthew Craven; Ryan Travis Christian; Mathew Zefeldt; Nina Chanel Abney; Susy Oliveira; Taylor Baldwin; Tilman Hornig; Langdon Graves; and Jennifer Nehrbass.

Peggy Wauters: Tales from the Misty Fields
Drawing inspiration from the symbolic status of society’s others – such as prisoners, orphans and the disabled – Peggy Wauters employs a personal interpretation of codes and conventions that signify human frailty and folly. Historically resonant narratives, allegories, and allusions are explored to produce a particular vision of basic human fears and feelings for the contemporary climate.
