Free; by appointment only
Michael E. Smith, an artist now based in New Hampshire, didn’t come to Los Angeles to install his current show at Reserve Ames, a space that’s also a private residence in L.A.’s Harvard Heights. But he looked carefully at the pictures and made specific choices: an abstract gray sculpture made from hardened sweat pants in the entryway, a heat gun mobile where the wind chime usually hangs out back, a green light in the old garage. It’s this mix between precision and casualness that make the work so compelling.
