Site specific installations will be featured throughout the gallery, including a pair of 18 foot tall inflatable superhero men by Patrick Flibotte. Visitors can also interact with two performative installations during the events. Carrie Sieh will guide the audience into her installation with gender-specific invisible ink blots, and Visitors that ride the gallery elevator will stumble into a surprise performative installation by Rosemarie Romero.

A group of prominent art professionals will serve as guest judges and select cash prizes. Awards will be announced at the Closing reception on Oct. 12, in addition to live music by Killmama and AstroKats.
