'Seven Minutes in Heaven'

Since its debut on the Contemporary Art Month calendar in 2012, the erotic pop-up "Seven Minutes in Heaven" has emerged as one of the season's most buzzed-about events. Named after a party game favored by horny teens, the one-night-only happening owes more than a little of its cachet to the promise of racy antics on display in a seedy location. Yet curator and Invisible Gallery founder Jessica Garcia consistently shakes things up with a rotating roster of local and visiting artists who also contribute to an erotic coloring book ($10) that both complements and helps fund the show. Featuring contributions from nine artists (Mat Kubo, Ed Saavedra and Ethel Shipton among them) the fourth incarnation takes over the Fox (rooms, courtyard and all) with uncensored expressions in video, installation, performance and puppetry, plus music by Pink Leche and El Fenix.

Free, 6-10pm, Fox Motel, 302 Newell Ave.,
