The prints from Juan Capistran's new show at Thomas Solomon Gallery are so white that, if you look at them online, you can't even tell what they depict. See them in person and you'll know one shows a white bottle in front of a white background, another a whited-out protest sign, and a third a chalky white clenched fist. The show, called "White Riot ... be the beacon, be the light. KO'd by love" KO'd as in "knocked out," in boxing lingo feels static and militant at the same time. It's like a rebel about to carry out some plan got caught in one of those quarantine zones they have on sci-fi shows like Fringe and frozen in space and time. 27 Bernard St., Chinatown; through Nov. 2.
