In conjunction with the exhibition The Lining of Forgetting, The Austin Museum of Art presents Federico Fellini’s 8 ½. Watch the original trailer of 8 ½ on YouTube.

Domy Books, through July 23
Ice Cold, a solo show by Cruz Ortiz, and I am not so different, a photography show curated by Rachel Cook, take over Art Palace next Saturday. Two very different shows, but both extremely promising.
