Three shows at SooVAC

Soo Visual Arts Center has not one but three thematically dissonant exhibitions opening Saturday, because, you know, variety is the spice of life. Christine Rebhuhn makes wordplay literal, transforming it into the sculptural. “Ekphrastic 2.0: A Collaborative Storytelling Experiment” brings together 38 artists drawing on walls in the Surrealists’ exquisite-corpse style. Liza Sylvestre’s multimedia exhibition “Interference” takes viewers through the artist’s experience of being deaf — in the medical sense of the term, but not culturally — which limits her ability to follow conversations in a hearing world. All three exhibitions run through Aug. 26. (Opening reception 5-9 p.m. Sat. 2909 Bryant Av. S., Mpls. 612-871-2263 or soovac.org)
