Artists Sandra Davis and Koo Kyung Sook use their own bodies with striking objectivity as both inspiration and means for the visual narratives — sensual, conceptual, female and universal — on view in the Center for Contemporary Art Sacramento, 1519 19th St. in Sacramento, exhibition Body Stories.

The affecting beauty of the films, collaged stills, installations and prints that make up this show comes from the intimacy of the source, the artists’candid poetics, and their masterly innovations with mixed photographic and print media. The show runs through May 13.

Saturday, April 28 at 3 p.m.: Doug Rice and Stephanie Sauer discuss their collaboration “Dream Memoirs of a Fabulist” (Copilot Press, 2011). Surrounded by Koo Kyung Sook and Sandra Davis’ Body Stories, author Rice and book artist Sauer speak to the creation of Dream Memoirs, exposing the processes of forming sentences and words and photographs, unstitching genders, and designing a book to be read in myriad ways, including touch.

Thursday, May 3 at 7 p.m.: Lecture by Koo Kyung Sook

Saturday, May 5 at 6 p.m.: Lecture by Sandra Davis

Admission is free but donations are appreciated. Lectures are $5 and free for members and students.
