    Gregory Lind Gallery: Eamon O'Kane - Baum Test

    Comment by AB: The show commemorates a 1958 Berkeley study where ten noted architects underwent extensive psychological testing to determine whether traits of creativity could be quantified in terms of personality. My favorites? Small paintings in intensified palettes of homes designed by the architects.

    Fraenkel Gallery: Hiroshi Sugimoto - Remains to be Seen

    Comment by AB: Hiroshi Sugimoto makes oversized time-exposure photographs of the interiors of abandoned movie theaters dating from Hollywood's Golden Age. The source of lighting for each photograph is a vintage film playing from beginning to end. Go see.

    K Imperial Fine Art: Mila Libman - Changing Landscape

    Comment by AB: According to the deposition, Mila Libman rubs dry pigment onto paper and then creates her soft photorealistic silhouette images by erasing detailed areas of that pigment. Unusual technique... and it works.
