In the pilot of Lena Dunham's new HBO series, Girls, the lead character tells her parents she might just be “the voice of my generation,” or at least “a voice of a generation.” Lena's real dad, Carroll Dunham, opened a retrospective of his drawings made between 1982 and 2012 at Blum & Poe gallery the same week as Girls' hyped-up debut. His perverse, introspective work seems almost unaware of which generation it belongs to. The craggy pictures of a voluptuous woman crawling through the desert, of a hat that looks like a penis, or of a man who looks like a house could have been made in 1960 as easily as 1990. 2754 S. La Cienega Blvd.; through May 26. (310) 836-2062, blumandpoe.com.

Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: April 24. Continues through May 26, 2012
