      I know, I know, the last thing you want to read here is more economy doom and gloom—and believe me, I'm the last person who wants to open that can of worms. But let's face it—rejection is the topic of the day right now. From the freshly laid off white collar worker reduced to applying at Starbucks because there just aren't any other jobs to the would-be homeowner who can't land a loan, everyone is tasting the bitter sting of rejection these days.

Mini city skylines extend across the bottom inch of large, white paper canvases. Above the fictional city planes: open sky. Up, up, up.

It has been a rough start to the new millennium, and sadly art survey shows have failed to reflect the context in which art makers and viewers live. Thankfully Lauri Firstenberg of LAXART has remedied the disconnect with the 2008 California Biennial. Before you walk in the door, Sam Durant's banners (in English and Spanish) hijack the OC's civic-boosterism-via-banner-blight, by reminding residents that their comfortable homes were built by the sweat of an undocumented workforce, on a piece of...
