(May 18-22) THERE, NOT THERE Visual arts and architecture intersect in There, Not There, an exhibit of paintings, drawings and installation pieces at the Evolve Urban Arts Project in Northeast D.C. through Saturday. Mid-week existentialism is the name of the game in this show, using the paradoxical imagery of artist Matthew Carucci to challenge our nations of permanence and the supremacy of man-made structures over nature.

(May 19-23) GENIUS REDUX The Washington Ballet closes out its season this week with Genius3. The exponential talent of this District dance troupe is on full display in a dynamic tribute to the masters of modern dance, Wednesday through Sunday at the Sidney Harman Hall in downtown D.C.

(May 19) JUST ANYBODY Meanwhile, geometry has its day in the myriad love triangles of Just Anybody, screening tomorrow night at the Avalon Theatre. The 2008 French feature follows a twenty something Francophone as she attempts to cure listlessness with love.
