Even outdoor of its sorts and lots of makes use of, the mushroom is an advanced, little fungus. Depicted by way of the artists of “Hi-Fructose Presents: The Art of the Mushroom,” coming to The Compound Gallery this month, it’s a prism of views: fantastical or leisure, sexual or familial. The gallery describes this display as “an exploration into artists’ interpretations of the pleasant, fatal, tasty, hallucinogenic, phallic, alien, and mythical mushroom.” Here are only a few of the items featured in the display, with a roster of 50-plus artists.
