Math Bass' performances, paintings and sculptures often have an unpretentious lightness, soundness and rhythm to them, which accompanies a feeling of impending doom, though not necessarily an end-all-be-all sort of doom. It's more like an acknowledgment that the world's not always sunny and we're all navigating that. In her current show at Overduin & Co., paintings done in a graphic, stenciled style show alligators with mouths wide open, ready to eat other alligators, and smoking cigarettes floating and falling through space. The gates, bent steel arches and ladders that also populate the space are like escape routes that don't actually take you away. 6693 Sunset Blvd., Hlywd.; through April 19.
