HQHQ complete a three week residency, The Chicken and the Hog, by John Knight. The project is based on the measurements reported on the weight and value of pigs slaughtered for food. Pigs are smart and they can uncurl their tails. Between elephants, whales, dolphins on through food fish, cows, chickens and shellfish, all of which we delight in ending, they are probably far above the median in the great chain of being. Knight based his work on the National Daily Base Lean Hog Carcass Slaughter Cost reported by the United States Department of Agriculture. The description on the HQHQ website is much more surreal. Tonight is the closing reception. At HQHQ Project Space 232 SE Oak St #108 6PM-9 Free

In no Great Hurry - 13 Lessons in Life with Saul Leiter is a documentary interview with the photographer-painter artist. Leiter worked as a fashion photographer. He also made contributions to street photography in the art world. The world only became aware of his paintings late in his life. He passed in 2013. The Ampersand website has a more eloquent description of his work and the film, sure to be poignant. What is sad is that respect has come posthumously, fully exploited by the art-making machinery.
