SPACES Gallery continues to explore its place in the regional art world and become a venue that’s hooked on concepts. The main galleries offer some new projects today. One is a newspaper called Art Work by the Chicago-based Temporary Services collective, which includes artists Brett Bloom, Salem Collo-Julin and Marc Fischer. They’ll put together the paper and its website, with SPACES serving as its distribution hub. Stories will focus on the effect of working in depressed economies on artistic life, process and product. Also opening is Co Existing and Co-Laborating, which features film and video by teams that work and live together (like Emily Vey Duke and Cooper Battersby, and Travis and Dana Hanmer). Plus, guest-artist program SpaceLab re-launches with Cleveland Heights sculptor Elizabeth Emery, who deals with society’s perception of and treatment of women in The Nurse and the Police Officer. Finally, painter Robin Latkovich experiments with installation and sound in a dark environment in his exhibit Evocation/Presence. All the shows open with a free reception from 6-9 p.m. and continue through January 15 at SPACES (2220 Superior Viaduct, 216.621.2314). — Michael Gill
