Art can be politicall­y subversive, especially in today’s overly partisan political climate. Opalka Gallery’s new exhibit, “In Place of Now,” showcases works by eight artists that take on notions of estrangeme­nt and “otherness.” The themes, common to Afrofuturi­sm, manage to retain their relevance in today’s world. Co-created by gallery director Judie Gilmore and writer and scholar Rone Shavers, the exhibit offers new opinions on contempora­ry black identity and explores issues of blackness. An opening reception for the exhibit, which opened Feb. 12, is set for Friday. 6-8 p.m. Friday. Free. Opalka Gallery, The Sage Colleges, 140 New Scotland Ave., Albany. 518-2927742; opalka.sage. edu/exhibition­s
