Cult Classic: The Matrix @ The Enzian

Thomas A. Anderson is a man living two lives. By day he is an average computer programmer and by night a hacker known as Neo. Neo has always questioned his reality, but the truth is far beyond his imagination. Neo finds himself targeted by the police when he is contacted by Morpheus, a legendary computer hacker branded a terrorist by the government. Morpheus awakens Neo to the real world, a ravaged wasteland where most of humanity have been captured by a race of machines that live off of the humans’ body heat and electrochemical energy and who imprison their minds within an artificial reality known as the Matrix

Squarelando @ The City Arts Factory

Squares are a big deal. In the not-too-distant past, squares were the primary means by which we interfaced with media: televisions were square, computer monitors were square and even pictures, before Instagram relaxed its restrictions and rectangles became all the rage, were square. So show some love to one of the world’s most useful polygons at a gallery show that’s all about the square. Over 44 artists are participating, including local worthies Andrew Spear, Thomas Thorspecken, Morgan Wilson, Parker Sketch and Jaime Margary.
