Goings on About Town

Although Kereszi photographs the banal—a few pieces of popcorn on a blue theatre floor, a cotton-candy-pink curtain next to an equally tacky painting—she avoids ironic angles and reveals a romantic sensitivity for the everyday. One image offers a deadpan look at the spot where two single mattresses meet to form a fake-out double bed; another shows a vacant rooftop parking lot. At first, it looks like another detached urban landscape. Then you notice a distant fireworks display bursting into the picture like Tinkerbell. Through May 27.
