If you’re in Los Angeles this month, take time to visit these must-see shows at spaces like the Marciano Art Foundation, The Mistake Room, and Shulamit Nazarian.
July 20—August 31
In Shulamit Nazarian’s exhibition “Roommates,” artists Chris Bogia, Woody De Othello, Rachel Granofsky, and Michael Stamm treat the domestic space as a psychological (and sometimes even psychedelic) realm, drawing from elements that represent a sense of home. Objects begin to take on a life of their own as the artists delve into the oddities of humans and our relationships with possessions. Included are pieces like De Othello’s ceramic sculptures, which treat household objects as an intimate presence used to alter physical states, Granofsky’s photographic works like Ghost Sex (depicting a human-like figure made of a mop, balloon, painted sweatshirt, and jeans), and more.
