‘Can’t Get There From Here’

Why: This exhibition set in a tall, glowing gallery that seems like a chamber of heaven probes what you want from art: transcendence? Transport? Three large photographs are anchors: A sublime sky over Nevada by Richard Misrach, displayed high like an altarpiece; a portrait of prehistoric underwater life taken at a natural history museum and printed in romanticizing black and white by Hiroshi Sugimoto; and what looks like a field of fog but is glass with potato-chip oil smeared on it by Isaac Layman. Enter the women: Britta Johnson’s wax tomb videos, Amanda Manitach’s ecstatic folds and deferred orgasms, and Serrah Russell’s National Geographic pictures laid on real landscapes. (Lawrimore Project, 117 S Main St, Suite 101,, 11 am–8 pm, free)
