Kate Silvio: 'You can never go home again'

Through Nov. 24, 6 p.m.

In a new solo show, artist Kate Silvio — a woman “on the cusp of what society defines as ‘middle age,’” according to a press release — offers new works that reflect upon aging, self-acceptance, and motherhood. “How did I get here?” Silvio writes in an artist statement. “Was it an action or a reaction? The realization is that you may not be able to recall the exact moment when you made these decisions, but it must be you who made them.” The sculptor, a College for Creative Studies alum who now lives in Grand Rapids, creates multimedia works made from metals, rubber, felt, and wood, among other materials.

Sonic Youth: 30 Years of Daydream Nation

Tue., Nov. 13, 8 p.m.

Thirty years ago, Sonic Youth dragged the underground into the light with the band’s fifth and seminal album Daydream Nation. In fact, the collection containing “Teen Age Riot,” “The Sprawl,” and “Rain King” was preserved by the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry for its cultural importance. To celebrate Kim Gordon, Thurston Moore, Lee Ranaldo, and Steve Shelley’s contribution to a major convergence in indie music, filmmaker Lance Bangs is taking highlights from his Daydream Nation concert film on the road along with rare and unreleased footage. $12-$15
