Artist Jay Erker, who is certified in CPR and first aid, will provide free child care at Raid Projects this weekend. It will be "child-focused, participatory experimental action" that lasts for the duration of the opening of women-only group show "Tete-a-Tete." That night, Molly Shea also will perform, using a water-filled condom as a magnifying lens to start a fire while discussing ancient forms of feminism, and Marisa Williamson will appear as Sally Hemings, quilting while telling her story. 602 Moulton Ave., dwntwn.; Sept. 7, 5-10 p.m. email@example.com, raidprojects.com.
