Work of Benjamin Jones 1994-2020: Until December 22, Laney Contemporary, 1810 Mills B Lane Blvd .; laneycontemporary.com.
New sculptures, including singularly eccentric rabbits, skulls and elephants, emerged when Jones discovered stored boxes of straight pins and abandoned Styrofoam rabbit shapes that he had spared more than a decade ago. Carefully embellishing each shape with papier-mâché and colorful pins, the materials spoke to Jones as abandoned and reborn objects from his past and materials for his future, like sculptural cushions haunting us with an era-era mentality. depression or homemade Faberge eggs, they give off a sense of reuse culture needed during virus lockdown.
The acupounded fluff of neighboring rabbits and pierced skulls appear to be protected by a layer of experience and armor.
Social distancing on the lawn and in the gallery. a personal selection of drawings and sculptures reveals the continuities of a creative life, and the links between past iconography and renewed energy.

“White Wig” by Mehryl Levisse: until December 12 at the SCAD Museum of Art, scadmoa.org/exhibitions/white-wig.

Using gender-related symbols and images associated with pageantry, masquerade and cabaret, the artist produces an extravagant visual language that questions commonly accepted conceptions of masculinity and femininity. Levisse’s performances and installations act as stages on which the genre is remixed and obscured. As master of ceremonies, the artist orchestrates the space to question the limits of the body and the societal codes that constitute our behavior.
