Like Little Richard? Love high-heeled ladies’ footwear? So does interdisciplinary visual artist Hudson Marquez, whose exhibition of new paintings, “Rhythm and Shoes,” is installed at Hollywood avant-brow emporium La Luz de Jesus. Marquez, a founding member of the genre-smashing Ant Farm/Cadillac Ranch collective, is poetically coy in his statements as to the early influence of Nawlins music clubs on his life’s aesthetic. But he’ll get wordier at this Sunday afternoon’s gallery talk explaining the connections in his colorful, quirky, hilarious and rather dark narratives between icons of subversive R&B history and the alarming allure of the stiletto. La Luz de Jesus, 4633 Hollywood Blvd., Los Feliz; Sun., Jan. 18, 2-4 p.m., free. Exhibition continues Mon.-Wed., 11-7 p.m.; Thu.-Sat., 11-9 p.m.; Sun., noon-6 p.m.; through Feb. 1. (323) 666-7667, laluzdejesus.com.
