We could spend hours watching Cory Arcangels Mario Movie (2005), a surprisingly touching account of what happens to the famous Italian plumber as the Nintendo world begins to deteriorate. Arcangels more recent work, Apple GarageBand Auto-Tune Demonstration (2007), is just one of many pieces that will be featured in Pivot Points Part 3, a mixed-media exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art. Other artists with breakthrough works in the show include Magdalena Abakanowicz, Catherine Opie, Rita Ackerman, Roni Horn, Hank Willis Thomas, and the Paris-based collective Claire Fontaine. Show up at 7 p.m. this Friday for the opening reception and the first look. Entrance is free for MOCA members and $10 for everyone else. Just make sure you RSVP to 305-893-6211.
