More than Misdirection
The magicians at Max's Magic Shop and Theatre deliver moments of the impossible
Max's Magic Shop has, under several different names and under multiple owners, delivered moments of the impossible to Albuquerque for 40 years. That's a tremendous track record that testifies that there is an enduring audience for this performance art, and that their will always be people who love the craft enough to make sure that it survives here.
This week's art finds include photographs by Miguel Gandert, works by Zahra Marwan and Nina Elder, and a production of Little Women.
