Pablo Rasagado, “This Too Shall Pass,” 2017, installation view at Steve Turner

The most interesting thing about Pablo Rasgado's installation “This Too Shall Pass" is how walls made from drywall fragments form a labyrinth in the space. The work addresses how one thing can become another, and how material discarded by art institutions (the drywall comes from the Museum of Modern Art, Antwerp and the Carrillo Gil Museum, Mexico City) can be recycled aesthetically in the broad tradition of assemblage. Less interesting is the way works by other artists from Los Angeles and Latin American inhabit the space; namely, hanging on the clean walls between Rasgado's intervention as well as occasionally atop his fragmented surfaces. While works by these other artists were included by Rasgado's choice, they end up detracting from rather than enhancing his compelling central idea, relegating it too much into a conventional support role.
