Richard Ankrom, “The Curio Shop,” at Charlie James Gallery. The artist, who is perhaps best known for installing a directional sign on the 110, also works with appropriated bits of kitsch that he transforms in strange and bizarre ways. For his show at Charlie James, he takes porcelain figurines and other odd bits of decorative detritus and outfits them with special-made mini-bondage gear. The result is as demented as it is irresistible. Opens June 6 and runs through July 11. 969 Chung King Road, Chinatown, Los Angeles, cjamesgallery.com
