Mixografia is a unique jewel in the crown of the Los Angeles fine-art print studio scene, with artists from near and far obsessed by both their illustrious history and proprietary dimensional printing techniques. For the past couple of years, they’ve operated a big gorgeous exhibition gallery on site, where they stage both historical exhibitions and solo shows built around the release of new series and portfolios.

Analia Saban: Dry Clean Only continues the artist’s interest in the secret heroism of overlooked objects like plastic bags and bath towels deracinated from their mass-production contexts and scrutinized for the semiotic societal information they impart. Her new series of eight works enlarges a collection of humble clothing tags, the better to appreciate their purposeful making, their reductive messaging, and the insights they offer into the global supply chain.

Mixografia, 1419 E. Adams Blvd., Central-Alameda; opening reception: Sat., Sept. 28, 4-6 p.m.; exhibition: Tue.-Fri., 10 a.m.-5 p.m. & Sat. 11 a.m.-6 p.m., through Nov. 9; free. mixografia.com.
