Paintings that spin, Brazilian street carts laden with scraps and drippy canvases that document São Paulo’s organically-expanding cityscape. That’s what’s currently on show at Factory Fresh in the intriguing group exhibit Lichen, which is showing the work of artists Apolo Torres, Loro Verz and Mundano, all of whom hail from São Paulo. Especially interesting: Torres’s urban landscapes, which celebrate a city in permanent contact with calamity.

Lichen is up through July 26.
