This week, dive into Bushwick. Let the openings wash over you as you plunge into the bi-annual gallery crawl/neighborhood party that is Beat Nite.
Also, there will be an indie video game festival at the Museum of Moving Image and an exhibition about the year 1993 at the New Museum. Here’s an excerpt from this week’s events at the L Magazine:

Gallery crawl: Beat Nite, Bushwick
Beat Nite returns! Norte Maar hosts, Hyperallergic sponsors, and Julian Jimarez-Howard curates the neighborhood-wide gallery crawl. This time, 10 galleries will be open, so the more ambitious among us may just be able to do the whole marathon. Featuring relatively new galleries Aux Proj the Parlour and the new store Lowbrow Artique. Head to the after party at Bizarre, 12 Jefferson Street.
6-10 PM, Bushwick (map)
