Tamir Sher imagines a slightly off-kilter homecoming, modeling photographs of her native Tel Aviv after shots taken on an expedition to Mars. The tenement-like structures and eerie, postapocalyptic emptiness suggest a bleak future for both planets. Happy New Year, everyone! The exhibition is up at Chelsea's Point of View Gallery through tomorrow. —Rachel Wolff
