In what may be the most frightening faux-bunker of all time, Atlanta-born artist Travis Somerville riffs on past southern trends (Confederate flags!), icons (KKK babies!), oddities (blackface Kennedy!), and, well, blaring bigoted missteps in his mixed-media installation of drawings, found objects, and sculptural works, Authentic Facsimiles of a Nation, up at Caren Golden Fine Art through February 9. —Rachel Wolff
