What do neem,papaya and myrtle have in common? Each purportedly holds the power to make men sterile. Dallas-based artist Mary Walling Blackburn’s “Anti-Fertility Garden” is a two-part experience comprised of a garden filled with those sterilizing plants, and a gallery of drawings, sculpture, video, and handmade anti-fertility soap by Sophy Naess. Regardless of where you stand “genitals abound, but they aren’t what they seem.” Selected by guest curator Laurence Miller, Blackburn arrives amidst the tides of change as Anjali Gupta takes over for Hills Snyder as director of Sala Diaz. Free, 6-9pm Friday, Sala Diaz, 517 Stieren, (972) 900-0046, saladiazart.org. —Murphi Cook
