There is sometimes a sous chef in New York-based artist Darren Bader's exhibition at Blum & Poe, and sometimes not. Or so an official-looking sign set up on a Persian carpet in the middle of the gallery announces -- I have not yet seen a chef, and it's hard to know what one would do there. But there are newish Kindle Fires on the wall, one displaying a saturated image of Bryan Cranston sleeping in a bright green sleeping bag and another showing a birdhouse jumping rope. A Coney Island-worthy rickshaw stands behind the carpet and a variety of other objects, all arranged in a manner too intentionally to be accidental but too intuitively to make perfect sense. 2754 S. La Cienega Blvd.; through Aug. 31. (310) 836-2062, blumandpoe.com.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: July 20. Continues through Aug. 31, 2013
