Crit­ics’ Choices

Ed­ward Bur­tyn­sky If ants had cam­eras — as well as he­li­copters, drones and hy­draulic lifts— they might­make pho­to­graphs that look a lot like Bur­tyn­sky’s sublime pic­tures of the marks hu­mans have made on our planet (D.P.). Von Lin­tel Gallery, 2685 S. La Cienega Blvd., L.A. Tue.-Sat. 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; ends June 20. (310) 5595700.


Hugo Crosth­waite The artist’s works clearly re­flect rich in­ter­nal nar­ra­tives about Ti­juana’s role as a gate­way be­tween two sep­a­rate, un­equal ways of life. How­ever, these sto­ries are so deeply en­coded, so densely lay­ered, as to be nearly in­ac­ces­si­ble (S.M.). Luis De Je­sus Los An­ge­les, 2685 S. La Cienega Blvd., L.A. Tue.-Sat. 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; ends June 20. (310) 838-6000.

Eve Fowler: The Dif­fer­ence Is

Spread­ing Gertrude Stein doesn’t need Eve Fowler. The early 20th-cen­tury ex­per­i­men­tal writer is a touchstone of mod­ernism. Yet Fowler brings Stein’s legacy to new life in a thor­oughly en­gag­ing ex­hi­bi­tion. The L.A. artist has worked with Stein’s texts for the past five years, ren­der­ing them as un­ex­pected ad­ver­tis­ing in brightly col­ored posters and bill­boards (S.M.). Mier Gallery, 1107 Greenacre Ave., L.A. Tue.-Sat. 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; ends July 3. (323) 4985957. Group Show: Af­ter Vic­tor Pa­panek: The Fu­ture Is Not What It Used to Be The ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tures artists who en­gage with the prin­ci­ples of the in­dus­trial de­signer, writer and ed­u­ca­tor. The re­sult is an en­gag­ing and thought-pro­vok­ing ex­hi­bi­tion that cel­e­brates not only cre­ativ­ity but the no­tion that art might make the world a bet­ter place (S.M.). Ar­mory Cen­ter for the Arts, 145 N. Ray­mond Ave., Pasadena. Tue.-Sun. noon-5 p.m.; ends Sept. 6. (626) 792-5101.
