The July Kamikaze Exhibits at downtown studio gallery PØST are a staple of the summer season for art lovers attracted to places and practices that are still somewhat off the beaten path. Although the neighborhood around this industrial side-alley venue has seen exponential changes as the Arts District moniker attracted fancier denizens, its doggedly independent character has remained intact — and another full month of its now-infamous, artist-curated, one-night shows is in the offing. On 31 consecutive nights, the space hosts 31 different solo or group shows organized by artists who are given free rein to be as minimal or ambitious as they want to be, as long as they can manage to install, open and de-install in the course of a single day. The results are every bit as eclectic and insane as that sounds. While the curators aren't showing their own work, their organizing efforts surely provide insight into their creative practices. The diverse crew of artists in charge includes installation/performance artists JEFF&GORDON (July 1), painter Jay Erker (July 8), sculptor and installation artist Margaret Honda (July 11), painter and video artist Annie Wharton (July 14), illustrator and collagist Sarajo Frieden (July 16), sculptor Eric Johnson (July 20) and cosmic interdisciplinary conceptualist Dani Tull (July 28). Don't think about it, just do it. PØST, 1904 E. Seventh Place, dwntwn.; receptions nightly, Tue., July 1-Thu., July 31, 7-9 p.m.; free. (213) 488-1280, postlosangeles.org.
