A nerdy man in glasses with parted wavy hair keeps reappearing in Josh Mannis' "Sexus" exhibition at Thomas Solomon Gallery. The man's sitting naked next to a woman, reading manifestos with a cityscape looming behind him. Or he's dancing next to an ice cream cart with a flapper who has her hand around his penis. But the drawings always read as pleasantly tame despite their risqué quirks. 427 Bernard St., Chinatown; through July 12. (323) 275-1687, thomassolomongallery.com.
Wednesdays-Saturdays. Starts: May 31. Continues through July 12, 2014
