The show, which runs through September 4, has works pulled from the holdings of Chicago’s Thoma Foundation, which has an emphasis on work from the Spanish Americas.

Moving in Place

Yvonne Osei’s EXTENSIONS, from “Moving in Place”

Charlotte Street’s Moving in Place is a site-specific show that features nine artists and includes performance, video art, sculpture and photography. The show was curated by Kimi Kitada, who gathered pieces in which the artists “use their own bodies as material and vessel for performance-based works.” The show includes work from artists based in Chicago, New York, L.A. and two locals (Haley Kostas and Johanna Winters), and in each work, the “presence of the body is integral to the realization of each piece.”

Opening reception on Friday, March 4, 6–9 pm. Charlotte Street Gallery, 3333 Wyoming St., KCMO. Show continues until March 19.

Sporting KC vs. Houston Dynamo

Sporting KC’s home opener finds the side facing some familiar foes. Houston’s new head coach is Paulo Nagamura, who won two ’chips as a player at Sporting and has been an assistant for the past five seasons.

Nagamura also poached a number of assistants to fill out his Dynamo staff.

Saturday, March 5. 2:30 pm. Children’s Mercy Park.
