Art that makes you feel small

Amanda Ross-Ho's new show at MOCA's Pacific Design Center space is called "TEENY TINY WOMAN," and her work does make you feel painfully small. In the smaller, downstairs gallery, huge rectangles of drywall lean against the actual walls, crowding in on you. Streaks of dirt, blown-up photographs and notes to self scuff up these rectangles. Upstairs, a linen shirt big enough to dwarf a fairy-tale giant hangs on the far wall. The whole show feels like postmodern Alice in Wonderland, where Wonderland is a confluence of city warehouses, discount groceries and suburban closets. 8687 Melrose Ave., W. Hlywd.; through Sept. 23. (310) 289-5223,
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: June 23. Continues through Sept. 23, 2012
