    Today’s show: “Calvin Marcus: Malvin Carcus” is on view at David Kordansky in Los Angeles through Saturday, March 26. The solo exhibition, the artist’s first with the gallery, presents two new bodies of work. The first is a series of dry-cleaned shirts that act as ready-made portraits of the artist and the second is a series of 4-by-8-foot paintings on linen.
