2. Adrienne Elise Tarver, “Stories of Shadows” at Victori + Mo
Don’t feel too bad about the voyeuristic nature of Adrienne Elise Tarver’s new video work, eight video vignettes of rooms in someone’s home. The artist has constructed an entire fictional persona for the resident, named “Vera Otis,” based on a found photograph of an anonymous black woman in glasses. According to the gallery Otis, whose name is a play on the word veritas, “acts as a surrogate for Tarver who, as a woman of color, finds Otis’s life a comforting place to imbue her hopes and fears upon.”

Location: Victori + Mo, 56 Bogart St
Price: Free
Time: Opening reception, December 9, 6:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m.; Thursday–Sunday, 1:00 p.m.–6:00 p.m.
