'Ask a Banana, Baby'

Sweden is freaked out. By what exactly, it's hard to say. But a show of three Swedish artists at Howard House explores threat: the threat of filthy little pygmies and sadistic lower-class families ruining the neighborhood (Nathalie Djurberg's In Our Own Neighbourhood), the threat of burka-style wraps covering entire couples (Annika von Hausswolff's The 21st Century Transitional Object), and the dueling threats of boredom and escape (Johanna Billing's Look Out!). It's live-action video, animation, and photography. (Howard House, 604 Second Ave, 256-6399. 10:30 am–5 pm, free.)
