Images of Women: The Bass Museum (2121 Park Ave., Miami Beach) takes a look at the way women have been portrayed by artists throughout history in its latest exhibition, "Images of Women." The approximately 60 works included range from rare pieces such as Benjamin West's Countess of Northampton and Daughter and Toulouse-Lautrec's Mlle. Marcelle Lender, en Bust to Berenice Abbott's Twenties-era photographic portraits of bohemian American expatriates in Paris and contemporary depictions of sadomasochism and feminism by Richard Linder and Audrey Flack. Also featured are nineteenth-century Austrian and French portraits of literary figures and stage actresses, as well as contemporary portraits of Miami Beach residents by photographers Mary Ellen Mark, Andy Sweet, and the late Marcia Walkenstein. Admission is five dollars. Museum hours are 10:00 to 5:00 from Tuesday through Saturday (open 1:00 to 9:00 the second and fourth Wednesday of every month), and 1:00 to 5:00 on Sunday. Call 673-7530.

A Night of Disarray: Rather than schedule a bunch of bands that all look and sound the same, Squeeze (2 S. New River Dr., Fort Lauderdale) goes the eclectic route tonight with an assortment of alternative music acts that could hardly be lumped together. The four-man hardcore band Endo blends rap-style vocals with hard-hitting rhythms, power chords, and a positive message for a Rage Against the Machine-esque vibe. The Weeds do a spare, rhythmic jazz-funk thing to back a smokin' spoken-word performance. The Nocturnals explore the darkness with trippy psychedelic rock. And Honeysticks drip with darkly sweet, Brit-pop-influenced melodies. Admission is five dollars. Showtime for this eighteen-and-over show is 10:00. Call 954-522-2151.
