People disappear in any number of ways--by physically departing, migrating or dying; by drifting away emotionally; by being forcibly purged from memory and the public record. Havana-based artist Raul Cordero evokes all of these processes of removal and nuances of loss in his recent paintings, which are now on view at the Iturralde Gallery in the artist's first U.S. show.

Toys and models have been integral to Chris Burden's art for decades. At Gagosian Gallery, they conspire to construct one of the most flat-out beautiful recent sculptures Burden has made. The centerpiece of the show is an elegant, abstract bridge, 32 feet long and 8 feet high. The curved span, made from stainless steel parts cast from a century-old Erector set, is supported at each end by an open-frame, wedge-shaped base made from laminated plywood.

The new work by Raul Cordero at Iturralde Gallery reminds us with canny humor of something we already know--that we cannot trust images, even photographs, to deliver the truth. Partial truth is the best we're going to get. It's going to masquerade as the real, authoritative thing, and most of the time that's how we'll passively accept it.
