The big contemporary art show of the season opens tonight, a traveling exhibition called The Talent Show—exploring our obsession with being seen, whether on Facebook or reality TV, or by government surveillance devices. To celebrate what will surely be an exuberant and creepy gathering of photographs, sculptures, and installations (originally organized by Minneapolis's Walker Art Center), the Henry Art Gallery is throwing a party with food, drinks, a green-screen dance scene just waiting for your intervention, a costume contest to be judged by The Stranger's own David Schmader, and a performance by Tender Forever. See, be seen. (Henry Art Gallery, 4100 15th Ave NE, 543-2280, 8–10 pm, $12)
