THERE IS NO SYNONYM FOR HOPE
The world is eroding -- bridges are falling down, the weather is almost as destructive as war, the economy is crumbling -- but we can still have hope, right? This multimedia group exhibition shows the collapse of all our favorite structures and institutions, with a glimmer of hope that there's possibility for things to improve. Wear your hard hat, because there are some intentionally structurally unsteady installations, but -- oh, it's about psychological erosion, too.
Smack Mellon, 92 Plymouth St., DUMBO, Brooklyn, (718) 834-8761. Opening reception, June 14, 5â8 p.m. Through July 27.
