This Week’s Must-See Art Events at the L Mag

by Whitney Kimball on September 24, 2012 · 0 comments The L Magazine

Whatever this is, it's happening in Dumbo (UPDATE: it's Wildbytes).

This week’s dive into event listings yielded a trove of art events so glorious that 900 words could not contain them. The Art Book Fair and the Dumbo Arts Fest are just a few of this week’s gems. Whether you’re painting  or trying to hack the mainframe this week, there’s an art event for that.

This Weekend

The New York Art Book Fair

The Art Book Fair returns! Printed Matter throws one of the best events of the year, packing PS1 to the gills with nerds, artists, and artist books. Budget wisely; if they’re doing the zine tent again, you can easily go broke before setting foot inside.
Lucy Lippard and Paul Chan will be keynote speakers.

Preview: Thursday, September 27, 6—9pm
Friday, September 28, 12—7pm
Saturday, September 29, 11am—9pm
Sunday, September 30, 11am—7pm
PS1, 4601 21st Street, Long Island City

Dumbo Arts Festival

Once again, AndrewAndrew’s already got us really pumped for the Dumbo Arts Fest. In addition to open studios and exhibitions, there will be more projection mapping technology as artists like the Budapest collective Glowing Bulbs will work their magic on the Manhattan Bridge Anchorage each night from 8 PM – midnight. And if that doesn’t sell ya, there’s gonna be a Twitter cookie raffle.

Art, Meetings, Potlucks, and a Hackathon: Occupy Stuff

You don’t have to get arrested, you don’t have to sleep outside, and you don’t have to stand in line at an information desk to figure out what’s going on. Basically, we’re completely out of excuses to keep skipping Occupy meetings.

Tonight, Monday, September 24th: Open action meeting, Occupy Museums, Momenta Art

Momenta has opened its space for six weeks of Occupy-related events and meetings in “Occupy Your BFF.” BFF stands for the Bloomberg Family Foundation, a privately-run charity founded by Mayor Bloomberg, which has reportedly drained the city of revenue by funnelling hundreds of millions of dollars into offshore tax havens.

Tonight, stop by for the open action meeting, held by Occupy Museums. If you don’t feel that Occupy represents you, then here’s an opportunity to change that.
For events throughout the month, check out Occupy Museums’ website.

6 PM, Momenta, 56 Bogart Street
