The Power to the Powerless by Carlos Gamez de Francisco Moremen Moloney Contemporary Free | Times vary Carlos Gamez de Franciscos exhibition, The Power to the Powerless, will be on display during the April 6 Republic Bank First Friday Hop. His photographs are not what they seem. While the portraits look majestic, with a Renaissance vibe, the sitters are not rich. The sumptuous clothing and headdresses are items found around the house. These photographs respond to my need to portray the ordinary people of Cuba, he said. In this work, I inquire about the problematic and subjective notion of power by altering the historical role of portraits in society. I wanted to reconstruct the meaning of power and to construct hope. Although the exhibition will end on Saturday, April 7, his photographs will be on display in the gallery through April. Moremen Moloney Contemporary is also showing Deliberate Expressions by Mildred Jarrett. Jo Anne Triplett

Tallis and Tech A Virtual Reality Choral Experience 21c Museum Hotel Louisville Free | 7-10 p.m. What preceded surround sound? Well, as far as music goes, people basically stood on all sides of you and sang. At least, that is sort of what composer Thomas Tallis tried to accomplish back in 1570, when he composed Spem in alium for a 40-person chorus that would form a horseshoe around its audience. 90.5 WUOL and the Louisville Chamber Choir are bringing Tallis work to the 21st century with actual surround-sound technology. Visitors can experience the production and 360-degree video in the main floor video gallery of the 21c Museum. An introduction and discussion will be led by UofL Director of Liberal Studies John Hale at 8 p.m. Light refreshments and a cash bar will be available.
