Kori Newkirk at LAXART:

Stephen Vitiello and Julie Mehretu at MC:

Somehow the kid seemed a more interesting photographic subject than most of the art in Culver City today, though the Vitiello audio-based installation was really cool, and could've easily stood on its own without the Mehretu drawing behind it. The press release indicated that Vitiello aims to "stretch the boundaries of listening by emphasizing the physical presence and materiality of sound."
