High-minded arts collective Agencies has put together its third show, this one widening the focus to encompass a multiverse of bodily possibilities: How do we choose between the boundaries of the body and the transcendence of the imaginary? This and other questions of self-identity are asked and answered by 15 artists, working in various media and hailing from various cities, states and nations – locals Leah Sandler, Kate Shults, Tess Bonacci, Anna Cruz, Barbara Lezcano, Marie Patrick and Harper C. Thomas are joined by artists from Brooklyn, Chicago, Los Angeles, London and Hong Kong. Two evening receptions are planned, for Thursday and Saturday (both starting at 7 p.m.), as well as open gallery hours from noon to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Check Agencies' Facebook page or Tumblr for teaser images and a schedule of performances.

7 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, May 12-14 | A Place Gallery, 649 N. Mills Ave. | facebook.com/agenciesorl | free
