Plagiarist of My Unconscious Mind! at Château Shatto In 1936 at the first public screening of Joseph Cornell’s film Rose HobartSalvador Dalí made a scene.

Evans & George Egerton-Warburton. (Downtown, Friday 6-9pm)
Madison East: Elbow Room in Paradise
at Chin's Push
"The geisha inhabits a separate reality, yet she is revered by all in her society. The devil is a manifestation of all unwholesome impulses. Both figures entertain, one through seduction or prudence and subtly and the other with temptation, until the geisha as victor proceeds to cast the devil out of paradise."

(Highland Park, Friday 7pm)
#foodporn at Jai & Jai We've all done it... Sometimes you just can't resist, and it's ok.

Easton Miller: I’m Already Dead In Dog Years
at CES Gallery
 Are we already dead in this over-saturated world of over-sharing?  Turning the banality of an ever-expanding digital era into carefully crafted minimal abstractions, Miller presents a new series of works that incorporate the ready-made into visceral and tactile windows.  
And who doesn't like a title like that? 
(Downtown, Saturday 6-9pm)
Katherine Bernhardt: FRUIT SALAD at Venus Over Los Angeles Just in time for the end of summer, a 100ft LA-inspired mural of watermelons, papayas, cantaloupes, toucans, and cigarettes.  This Sunday, join the gallery and the artist for an unveiling of her first public work and a BBQ to celebrate.

WOAH Last-Look:
Martin Basher's A Guide to Benefits at Anat Ebgi 
Entering the NY-based artist’s solo show, I am immediately self-conscious of things I forgot to buy: hand sanitizer and mouthwash are set in front of the first crisp gray gradient that greets me.
Like the pristine carcasses of consumerism and the mall hungry psychology Basher alludes to, the message here is discreet in it’s double-sided irony and imitation of cosmetic constructs. Closing Saturday (Culver City).
