The objects, provided by William Burroughs Communications, will be on display from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the DotDotDot ArtSpace, 1910 Haskell Ave. Among the items are stencils, stamps, “paint-covered curiosities” and others. Some of Burroughs’ paintings also are on display at the Bourgeois Pig, 6 E. Ninth St., where there will be an opening reception from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday that will include live music and readings.
