The dining booth Joel Kyack installed alone in a dim room of François Ghebaly's new space doesn't move, but the light above the table and the painting behind the seats do, going back and forth, emulating the rocking of the sea. Everything in Kyack's show “Old Sailors Never Die” has a nautical theme – there's a boat upright on scaffolding, made to look like a face, with foam nose and tongue protruding from its seats. It has the irreverent energy typical of Kyack, but in these big sculptures especially, the irreverence feels competent and unapologetic, like an old sailor who doesn't give a damn. 2245 E. Washington Blvd.; through March 8. (310) 280-0777, ghebaly.com.
