American Vinyl

Through June 5

Jeanne Lorenz’s installation American Vinyl imagines the record store as a museum of faux LPs and 45s (i.e., print and painting simulacra) reminiscent, in their frontality, painterly nuance, deadpan ambiguity, and discontinuous compositions, of Jasper Johns’ greatest hits. Ironic metaphysics aside, pieces like “Survival Evasion and Escape” and “Everyman” also succeed as abraded-looking abstract tondos. Through June 5 (artist talk at 3p.m.) at Compound Gallery (1167 65th St., Oakland). 510-817-4042 or CompoundGallery.com.
