   Never Not Here | PPROT-SE.   Invited to exhibit new works at   OV Project Space, Midori Hirose curates a prehistoric meets post-apocalypse exhibit. Included are new works by visual artists, performers and artists to create paintings for print matter. The exhibition echos the rock garden like space and current state of US affairs through this One-Night-Only Exhibition. New works by Natalie Anne Howard and Shawn Creeden; performances with Mia Ferm and Michael Reinsch and The Tenses; limited edition flap card art by Rainen and Dino Matt; and programs printed by   Container Corps.
