1. Lisa Kereszi
At Yancey Richardson through May 5
Kereszi finds poignancy as she shoots venues meant to be places of fantasy and escape—strip joints, nightclub lounges, movie theaters—in all their real-life seediness.
2. Alison Brady
At Massimo Audiello through June 23
In one of Brady’s mysterious images, the pristine blonde curls of a girl lying in the dirt cascade from under a green suitcase. You, the viewer, bring your own narrative.

Vibrant pics document an intimate relationship unfolding between two women—pre-kiss in a convertible, playing pool in a bar—but upon closer inspection, it’s the same model playing both of them, and the whole game is a comment on shifting identities.
