Patty Ortiz curates Guadalupe Gallery’s Fantastic Fuerzas/Forces, an exhibition that explores the influence and significance of comics in contemporary art. Whether political or poppy in approach, artists Juan Felipe Salcedo, Gustavo Higuera, Angel Rodríguez-Diaz, Dulce Pinzón, Nadin Ospina, Jaime Higa, Xavier Garza, Rafael Fajardo, Albert Alvarez, and David Almaguer combine fuerzas to present work that, while ironic or humorous on the surface, comments on “America’s mass media manipulation into marginal worlds.” The work of Mexico’s Dulce Pinzón sums up the exhibition nicely. Dressed as comic book characters and photographed in colorful surroundings, Pinzón’s unsung heroes (immigrant workers) appear suspended in the daily grind. Free, 6-9pm, Guadalupe Gallery, 723 S. Brazos St., On view through Nov 18.
