'The mouth and other storage facilities'

Liz Magor is a Vancouver, B.C., artist who makes sculptures out of painted cast gypsum: party trays, folded-up used jackets, woodland creatures either napping or dead. In this installation at the Henry, everything is laid out on tables like the remnants of a wild party—or the offerings of a louche boutique. This is the embodiment of the exhaustion of the consumptive class: you, everyone you know, even the well-fed animals out your window. Is this show better seen before or after your bank run? (Henry Art Gallery, 4100 15th Ave NE, 543-2280. 11 am–5 pm, $10. Through Dec 14.)
