A one-weekend-only pop-up show by painter and street artist Nico Amortegui, aka MALO, opens this Saturday at Right Proper Brewing Company in Northwest with an opening reception from 1 to 3 p.m. featuring live jazz, beer samples and hors d’oeuvres. In this show, entitled “Desechables” or “disposables,” MALO presents more than a dozen colorful pieces made from recycled materials that he’s found in the street.

This Friday you can head to Hillyer Art Space in Northwest at 7:30 and 9:15 p.m. for two performances of “TYGER”, a new work by banished? productions. The show takes place during a meeting by a fictional D.C. theater collective called No Inglés that recently lost a member in a mysterious disappearance. The play looks at fragmentation, poverty, love, loss and other meditations on the holes in our lives.
