Laviada made a terrific first impression at the New York Photo Festival this past spring, and it's no disappointment to see many of the same pieces in her first New York solo show. Working in old factories and offices in Mexico City, Laviada creates and photographs temporary assemblages on the buildings' dusty concrete floors. The empty gray spaces, lit by the sun, provide the elegantly neutral backdrop for a pyramid of paint cans, a leaning tower of file folders, a rainbow arc of paint rollers, and two piles of circular objects as antic and appealing as anything Rauschenberg ever threw together. Through Nov. 22. (Danziger, 521 W. 26th St. 212-629-6778.)
