Three things coming up later this week in NYC:
Funny, the last time I posted about events here I mentioned how infrequently I post about events here. At least this time it’s not about Open Studios. With that out of the way, there are five exhibitions and a record release that I want to point out:
- Ellie Irons is in Systematic Sampling, a group show at Stream gallery that opens tonight (tonight, as in Thursday, January 8th!), 7–9:30pm off the J/M/Z Myrtle Broadway stop in Bushwick.
- Zach Nader’s channel surf opens at Microscope Gallery on Friday, January 9th. You may have seen Nader’s car commercial video which made the rounds a while back.
- Netart badass Marisa Olson has a solo exhibition, Getting Ready, at Transfer Gallery, closing reception is on Saturday, January 10th, 7–11pm.
- Meanwhile, on the other side of Bushwick, Outlet gallery is opening Mark Dorf and Julian Lorber’s Second Nature, January 10th, 7–10pm.
- Also closing soon, that I haven’t made it out to yet, is Sebastião Salgado: Genesis at the International Center for Photography, which is across the street from where I work so no excuses here. Through this Sunday, January 11th.
- Hairy Sands are releasing their new album, Tears at a show at Trans-Pecos in Ridgewood, Queens (also convenient for me). Tickets are $8, doors open at 8pm on Tuesday January 13th.
Looks like the last time I posted events here was in 2010, just before Bushwick Open Studios. Well it’s that time of year again!
- We Are All Anonymous, Tonight May 23rd, 7pm at Triple Canopy, 155 Freeman Street, Brooklyn, NY (sadly I won’t be able to make this, but it sounds awesome)
- Flux Death Match: The New Aesthetic, Wednesday May 30th, 8pm at Flux Factory, 39-31 29th Street, Long Island City
- Bushwick Open Studios 2012 with my Future Archaeology pals, June 1st and 2nd from 12–7pm. 1381 Myrtle Ave Apt 4C (entrance on Himrod St), near the Knickerbocker M train stop. I’ll be showing some of my recent photography work as well as Occupy.here.
This weekend is going to be busy! I’m participating in Bushwick Open Studios (with two shows!) and I’m also teaching a session at ITP Camp.
In addition to the other things I mentioned earlier there is also this:
Update: I had the wrong day for IgniteNYC. It’s tomorrow night!
Ellie is co-teaching a class at Trade School tomorrow night called Drawing for Pleasure and Relaxation. My (non-keyboard) hand coordination is kind of pathetic and I’d like some practice. It is full, unfortunately, but if you’re really into the idea it’d probably be fine to just show up.
Another one I’ll be going to on Thursday is Art Work: A Discussion about Art, Labor, and Economics, which has a companion newspaper edition and website. There are 3 seats left as of right now.
Also, in case you missed it, there’s a free lecture tonight by CLUI‘s Matthew Coolidge out at Pratt (although, not on the main campus).
I’m kind of annoyed I missed the sold out Will Wright lecture last night. I had tickets and just totally forgot about it. But there’s a lot happening this weekend in my little sphere of interest, so maybe it’s good that I conserved some “going out energy.”
Friday, February 19
Saturday, February 20
Sunday, February 21
And of course there are a few workshops with space left at Trade School including “Caviar: Demystified,” “Collecting amidst disaster” and “Accidental Pornographies: Developing Underground Health Magazines and Stealth Distribution Models.”
I’m not seeing this posted on Pratt’s website or at the CLUI or at Bomb, so I’ll just copy + paste the email announcement here.
