Painter Julie Rofman rigs this high-school gymnasium with such an abundance of junk it makes it hard to say if she's decorating for a dance (balloons!) or playing a prank (chandeliers, paper cutouts, carpets, the kitchen sink, etc.). Her work is part of a group exhibition up at Chelsea's Caren Golden gallery through March 15. —Rachel Wolff
