A quiet exhibition, “Advancing Abstraction” at the Baltimore Museum of Art handily fills two, small galleries at the back with about twenty tabletop-to-medium-sized sculptures alongside a few related prints and sketches. Machine-age works in iron, copper, bronze, metal, steel, and wood from the museum’s collection divulge bit balletics, forest flute trills: Naum Gabo lovingly rubs a Plexiglas curve that frames an oval alabaster and intricately wraps steel spring wire; Ibram Lassaw torch-drips cop...

I’ll Be Your Mirror… So You Can Break Into Endless Shards, on view through August 10th at Heist Gallery, located on a busy stretch of Essex Street, is an uncanny reflection of the Lower East Side itself. The show is a cacophony of colors, textures, faces, youth, sex and religion. John Travolta makes an appearance in a cowboy hat, as does a lit-up bodega Virgin Mary, and there are plenty of empty pill bottles, wounds, and underwear to go around.
