Pictures at an Exhibition presents images of one notable show every weekday.

Today’s show: “Tala Maldani: Smiley Has No Nose” is currently on view at David Kordansky Gallery is Los Angeles through Saturday, August 29. The exhibition takes the unassuming signifier of the Smiley face as its central motif, and approaches the basic question of why it does not have a nose. Below is a selection of works that appear in the solo exhibition.
