Michael Wilkinson hung a scrawny copper ribbon from the ceiling for his new show at Culver City's Blum & Poe gallery. Because it's next to an 8-foot column of felt and a daunting black block that looks like a war monument made of Legos (it is made of Legos), the copper seems like an accident. It's not. Nor is the black splotch on the left breast pocket of a linen shirt that hangs on the closest wall. The tag inside that shirt says “No History,” and while Wilkinson's show overflows with historical references, most of them feel like deeply mysterious accidents posing as artifacts. 2754 S. La Cienega Blvd.; through July 7. (310) 836-2062, blumandpoe.com.
