“MPA + Katherine Hubbard,” at Higher Pictures, 764 Madison Avenue, through August 6, opening Wednesday, July 28, 9 p.m.
One of the most electrifying moments of the past art season was a performance by MPA (the stage name of artist Megan Palaima) at Cleopatra’s in Greenpoint that involved broken glass, self-mutilation, and blood. For this three-week show, Palaima has teamed with artist Katie Hubbard to make a series of “fashion articulations” for a new art feminist periodical called RANDY that will be published in September. Nine hundred photographs of the duo performing will be posted on walls, free to take for anyone that comes through.
