The Hammer's small vault gallery has always felt somewhat churchlike, which makes Andra Ursuta's current installation in that space feel even more like an old-fashioned churchyard scene than it otherwise would. Ursuta never visits cemeteries, but she made the sculptures for this show based on the shadows she imagines gravestones casting. The multicolored, knotty plaster and found-object shapes in varying size are quirky and ghostly in a transfixing way. 10899 Wilshire Blvd., Wstwd.; through May 26. (310) 443-7000, hammer.ucla.edu.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: March 8. Continues through April 25, 2014
