Impermanence of Things Remembered opening: A two-woman art exhibition featuring landscapes exploring ideas of imperfection and the titular impermanence by Yvonne DuBourdieu and Agata Garbowska. DuBourdieu’s works “invoke a memory of a place, set in landscapes of invention, infused with an energy that comes with reliving or reimagining a moment through memory.” Garbowska’s paintings explore spaces in flux: “An unnecessary human encroachment into the landscape is contrasted with fragments of everyday domesticity. These pieces present a growing concern about ecological disaster — an attempt to reckon with the consequences of consumer culture and its effects on the environment.” Runs through Dec. 23.

Agata Garbowska’s devoured by the fawns. supplied

Details: Reception 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. at The Carrot Community Arts Coffeehouse (9351 118 Ave.), no cover

 

Jenesia: Our Journey: Jenesa MacMullin and Alexander MacMullin have spent months preparing song arrangements and putting details together for this live concert event. There’ll be a live horn section, full band, dancer and some other fun surprises. Featured artists include Genesis Lamboson, Melafrique and the Melisizwe Brothers. $1 from every ticket sold will go to Little Warriors for their work preventing childhood sexual abuse.

Mean Streets (1973): Scorsese Fest continues with yet another reason to see anything besides Joker. Starring Harvey Keitel and Robert De Niro, it’s a bloody slice of street life in Little Italy among lower echelon Mafiosos, unbalanced punks, and petty criminals. After a small-time hood gets in over his head with a vicious loan shark, in an attempt to free himself from the dangers of his debt he gets help from a friend who is also involved in criminal activities, but this proves to be more trouble than he expected. In 1997 Mean Streets was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.” Haha, “or.”

Details: 9:30 p.m. at Metro Cinema (8712 109 St.), $13 at metrocinema.org
