Reviews by Leah Ollman (L.O.).


Interior with an Easel, Bredgade 25 This newly acquired, never-before-exhibited 1912 painting by Danish artist Vilhelm Hammershøi is now on view. The Getty Center, N. Sepulveda Blvd. & Getty Center Drive, L.A. Closed Mon. and Christmas Day. Free. (310) 440-7300.


The Incongruous Body Humor and the human body serve as brackets loosely containing the sculptural work in this 14-person show. Not all here is comic, and not everything manages to muster heat from the rub of expectation against direct experience — curator Tim Berg’s organizing principle — but the show has enough radiant moments to redeem the whole. Standouts include works by Kim Tucker, Kristen Morgin, Jeremy Brooks, Elana Mann and Robert Arneson. (L.O.) American Museum of Ceramic Art, 399 N. Garey Ave., Pomona. Open Wed.-Sat. Ends Jan. 20. $5, $7; 12 and under, free. (909) 865-3146.
