If you're tired of the routine of shuffling through galleries, no matter how good the art is, then this Second Saturday may be just the dose of medicine that you need. We've rounded up a series of events that shake up the norm, from a nostalgic shopping experience to the life-changing magic of tidying art.

Raul Gonzalez transforms a weekly ritual into a performance that doubles as a way to refresh his exhibition "Front and Back, and Side to Side," which has been on view at Artpace since May. As he cleans and otherwise zhuzhes up the gallery space on Saturday afternoon, he will be accompanied by a soundtrack via a tailor-made Spotify playlist that you can stream now to get you in that swiffering mood. 12:30-4:30 p.m. Saturday, July 13, Artpace, 445 N. Main Ave., artpace.org

Although inspired by reality shows like American Idol, the "Eyes Got It!" art competition rejects the common TV trope "I'm not here to make friends" with its annual art showcase, "Group Hug," in which the competition's semifinalists come together and spread the love. This year, the twelve semifinalists vying for a 2020 solo show at Austin's grayDUCK Gallery are Sarah Fox, Chrys Grummert, Justin Korver, Laura Latimer, Alejandro Macias, Barbara Miñarro, Steve Parker, Alvaro Perez, Michael E. Stephen, Julie Underiner and Doerte Weber. 7-10 p.m. Saturday, July 13, Mantle Art Space, 714 Fredericksburg Road, mantleartspace.com
