Benjamin Jones work 1994-2020: Through Dec. 22, Laney Contemporary, 1810 Mills B Lane Blvd.; laneycontemporary.com.

New sculptures, including singularly eccentric rabbits, skulls, and elephants came about when Jones uncovered stored boxes of straight-pins and abandoned styrofoam rabbit forms that he had thrifted over a decade ago. Carefully embellishing each form with paper maché and colorful pins, the materials spoke to Jones as discarded and reborn objects from his past and materials for his future, like sculptural pincushions haunting us from a depression-era mentality or homemade Fabergé eggs, they exude a revived sense of re-use culture necessitated during virus lockdown.

“White Wig” by Mehryl Levisse: through Dec. 12 at SCAD Museum of Art, scadmoa.org/exhibitions/white-wig. Levisse’s multifaceted practice explores notions of subjectivity and identity related to queer experience. Using gendered symbols and imagery associated with pageantry, masquerade, and cabaret, the artist produces an extravagant visual language that interrogates commonly accepted conceptions of masculinity and femininity. Levisse’s performances and installations act as stages on which gender is remixed and obfuscated. Serving as emcee, the artist orchestrates space to question the limits of the body and the societal codes that constitute how we behave.
