For its first outside-curated show, the new artist-run gallery devoted to identity selected as its organizer sharp-minded artist/performer/writer C. Davida Ingram. She chose works by 11 artists, creating a photo-heavy show that also includes video, painting, and collage, mostly by local—and entirely by emerging—artists. Kat Larson, covered in mud, performs for the camera; Frederic Moffett’s staged slide show revisits the oldest gay club in Chicago; Mihai Coman portrays Sovietized architectures; the team of Adrain Chesser and Timothy White Eagle capture what Ingram calls “cultural outlaws.” (Idea Odyssey, 666 S Jackson St,, 2–8 pm, free)
