Wave Pool’s Holding Ground pays homage to communities beyond the periphery, exploring themes of resilience, desertion and buoyancy of spirit. Participating artists in this group show include New Yorker Pablo Helguera, San Franciscans Chris Treggiari and Justin Hoover, Parisian Esther Shalev-Gerz and Cincinnati-based photographer Natalie Jenkins. The exhibit includes an exploration of traditional Shaker choreography, performances in food and storytelling, video documentation of members of four different European communities and photographic interviews of local Over-the-Rhine residents. This is the first time Shalev-Gerz’s Portraits of Stories work will be seen in the U.S.
Opening reception: 7-10 p.m. Saturday. Through Nov. 21. Free. 2940 Colerain Ave., Camp Washington, wavepoolgallery.org.
