Currier Museum of Art presents The Living Forest: UÝRA, which showcases the work of UÝRA, a trans-Indigenous artist who hails from Manaus, Brazil. Their work utilizes "performance art and ancestral rituals" to teach biodiversity, Indigenous rights, and environmental resistance. The show consists of video and photos that feature costumes made from natural materials that "blur conventional separations between humans, animals, and plants." The museum is open Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., and Thursday, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. The Currier Museum of Art is located at 150 Ash Street, Manchester, NH.

Kingston Gallery presents Hillary Tolan | In this Place, which features Hillary Tolan's drawing and photography. Tolan's photography is used to inform her drawn work. "My drawings respond to my photographs. From each photograph I glean information and select different moments- textures of bark, a sweep of movement in lines of branches," she said. Where her drawings sit in monochromatic black-and-white, her photographs erupt in the greens and browns of nature. The gallery is open Wednesday to Sunday, 12-5 p.m. Kingston Gallery is located at 450 Harrison Avenue, Boston, MA. For more information, please visit here.
