Okay, now that we’re on the brink of September, New York is coming back to life. And what a life it is—from anarchist spots in Bushwick to mansions in the Bronx, holograms on Governors Island to museums is Astoria—we’ve dug deep to find you the best, weirdest, and most under-represented stuff to do this week across the city.

Tuesday is your last chance to see Cao Fei’s solo show at PS1, and she’s speaking at Pratt that evening. So take a G train jaunt from the museum to the Pratt campus and also catch the closing reception for their Fine Arts MFA thesis exhibition before the talk. Wednesday, get digital u/dys-topian thinking with the surreal architectural images of Dionisio Gonzalez at Galerie Richard and the new Anarcho Tech Collective at The Base. Thursday, Carolina Nitsch Project Room is hosting two projects spanning 50 years of collective Art & Language, and Zak Krevitt’s solo show at Ray Gallery takes viewers inside the world of the “puppy play” fetish.

Friday, the Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum in the Bronx is throwing an opening reception for its centennial garden celbration. The museum has commissioned over a dozen sculptures to respond to sites in its formal gardens. Saturday, head to another overlooked landmark across town: the Governor’s Island Art Fair is bringing work such as Julia Maria Sinelnikova glittery, tech-heavy installations to the historic Colonel’s Row. Then, World Money Gallery is hosting a two-artist salute to Bushwick’s litter (the last line of defense against gentrification?). Finally, spend Sunday unwinding in the serene Noguchi Museum, but don’t worry about spending money—it’s a free admission “Community Day.”

There’s finally no excuse to be bored this week. It’s a big city out there. Go explore!

Post image for Bye-Bye Bb: An Interview with Allie Linn & Colin Alexander

For the past two years, we’ve been big fans of the little artist-run space Bb, which has brought smart site-specific projects to both its odd storefront in Baltimore’s Westside and booths at art fairs. When Colin Alexander and Allie Linn, Bb’s founders, announced that the space was closing, everyone seemed to be scratching their heads. Why would a popular art space close, one year after receiving a grant and so much attention? Colin’s answer, it turns out, is pretty straightforward…
