An artist who pays a lot of attention to things such as cans and empty bottles, Berlin-based Manfred Pernice has spent most of his career bringing together disparate objects in orderly but nonsensical installations. At Regen Projects right now, his installation "Bbreiland" feels like a mix between a worn office and a basement rec room. The sandbox-sized pink crate with steps and a rug built into it is among the best parts. 6750 Santa Monica Blvd.; through Aug. 16. (310) 276-5424, regenprojects.com.
