This weekend is Second Saturday, which means you’ll have a swell smattering of new art openings to dig. One highlight of the weekend is the new exhibit at Sala Diaz from mixed-media artist Ian Pedigo. Entitled “A Body in Latency,” the solo show is a meditation on the artifacts, settings and images that are associated with the human body, especially as a socially constructed concept. Coming from something of an anthropological perspective, Pedigo’s work here places would-be mundane elements of daily experience into an off-kilter picture of reality, a nod to the way in which our subconscious can warp the truths that are nearest to us in our everyday lives. In this way, “images behave somewhat like objects and objects like images,” and both are “employed to construct narratives whose defining components are connotations upheld by references extending beyond the edge of the frame.” Free, 6-10pm Sat, Sala Diaz, 517 Stieren St., (972) 900-0047, saladiazart.org. — JC
