Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE)

September 4 through November 9, 2014

Italian architect Gianni Pettena did some work with American artists Allan Kaprow and Robert Smithson in the 1970s, and became obsessed with Salt Lake City at one point. This is a show about the results of that collaboration.

Lily Simonson: On Ice

CB1

September 14 through October 26, 2014

Painter Lily Simonson goes on expeditions, and is on her way back to work with a scientist in Antarctica (this show is inspired by past work there). But her art isn't at all like the renderings you'd imagine from historical science books; it's expressive and loose, sometimes messy.

Pasadena | Inland Empire

The Fifth Wall: Tom Friedman, Evan Holloway, Farrah Karapetian, Alice Könitz, Marco Rios, Corinna Schnitt, Artur Żmijewski

Armory Center for the Arts

July 13 through December 14, 2014

In looking at this show, viewers are supposed to feel entirely aware of the fact that they're engaging with art. So when you're inside of Alice Konitz's miniature museum that's now installed in the Armory's galleries, you're ideally thinking Brechtian thoughts about what is "shown in the showing."
