Elaine Sturtevant, now in her 80s, goes by her last name — just Sturtevant. She has been interested in repetition since the 1960s, when, after she'd “repeated” some of his flower silk screens, Andy Warhol apparently said that if anyone wanted to know what his work meant, they should “ask Sturtevant.” Nearly every press release about her includes that quote, maybe as a way to suggest she's still on to something. Her video Finite/Infinite, currently projected against the whole, warehouse-length wall of 356 Mission Road, shows a dog running across a field again and again. Its body elongates as it progresses from one end of the wall to the other, and because it's on a constant loop, it begins to seem like a lot of dogs chasing the same thing. 356 S. Mission Road, Boyle Heights; through Dec. 8. (323) 609-3162, 356mission.com.
Wednesdays-Sundays. Starts: Sept. 28. Continues through Dec. 8, 2013
