Most of the art in “The Meme Machine,” the first show Agency is hosting in its new East Hollywood location, has a cobbled-together look, as if it was made from stuff found in the basement or out on the street. Even Luis Gispert's video, Block Watching, fits that bill. In it, a woman in a cheerleading outfit and costume jewelry — bangles, jangling necklaces, big hoop earrings — is in front of a green screen. Sounds of car alarms play loudly and she moves her body to match their pitches and crescendos. She's quite good at it. 4911 Clinton St., E. Hlywd.; through Sept. 27. (818) 415-7619,

Wednesdays-Sundays. Starts: Aug. 30. Continues through Sept. 27, 2014
