Swedish artist Oskar Korsár’s Stateside debut consists of large-scale ink drawings of what Korsár calls “100-year-old adolescents.” Sure, these ladies may seem to have old souls, but beholding their lanky limbs, gawky posture, oversize ears, freckles and/or pimples, and general look of bewilderment reminds us of something else — our own childhood. Sigh. Korsár’s show is up at Yossi Milo trough November 24. —Rachel Wolff
