Libby Rowe, "Learning Feminine: Posture," Belmont's Leu Art Gallery

All pink and frilly, Rowe's solo show set up a Sisyphean game in the context of Miss Manners. Viewers were invited to don pink pumps and walk across the floor carrying a teacup and saucer on their head. Most of the time the cup would drop and break, and you either repeated this until you successfully made the passage or gave up, at which point you took a broom (pink, naturally) and swept everything up into a pile of shards. The exercise mixed housekeeping, posture and prettiness in a perfectly pointless way—which was, of course, the point. —DAVID MADDOX
