The late-autumn, Halloween, Dia de los Muertos season is a time of transformation, whether by costume, weather, or state of being. Monsters, magic and memories are the order of the day, and the west side’s newest art-centric social hall, ArtBarLA joins forces with Visual Culture Arts to present a wild, witchy multimedia group exhibition celebrating the spirit of the creative changeling. Metamorphosis opens Sunday afternoon with a DJ party where it’s a safe bet interpretive couture is welcome; and the show remains on view through early November.

ArtBarLA, 12017 Venice Blvd., Mar Vista; opening reception: Sun., Oct. 27, 4-9 p.m.; exhibition dates: Oct. 27-Nov. 10; free. (310) 881-9312,
