New York City artist Jessica Lichtenstein re-contextualizes Japanese anime figurines, but they’re still pervy. So long, toy hoarders’ shelves. Hello, art gallery. Get a closer look at her 3D text sculptures, upholstery, light boxes and the lil plastic anime vixens themselves — torn from their commercialized packaging and staged into real-world scenarios and “stereotypical Western accoutrements like bottles of champagne, designer shoes and bags, and shelves of nail polish.” Double the kitsch! “Play,” Jessica Lichtenstein, Nov 18 – Dec 15, gallery nine5, NYC
