First to open among a cluster of exhibitions that celebrate the work and spirit of late local artist Chuck Ramirez, the Linda Pace Foundation’s group show  “Incite” presents works across various mediums (video, collage, painting and photography) that “provoke a feeling of festivity” but reveal deeper meanings upon closer inspection. Exemplified by Ramirez’s stark photographs of fractured piñatas, themes of temporality — and the fleeting nature of life itself — run through included works by Hills Snyder, Frances Stark, Diana Thater and Cheyney Thompson. Striking up a playful dialogue with Brazilian artist Rivane Neuenschwander’s hypnotic, room-sized installation Secondary Stories, “Incite” opens with a Thursday evening reception featuring musical entertainment by Sound Cream Airstream, refreshments from Honeysuckle Teatime’s savory concept Sage and cocktails crafted by David Naylor.
