I’m heading to Beat Nite this evening. The plan is to visit a couple of handpicked Bushwick spaces that will be open late. For this iteration of the event, gallerist/artist/curator Austin Thomas has chosen the spaces. Thomas runs Pocket Utopia, a space founded in Bushwick and now located in the Lower East Side. It was her work that first brought me out to Bushwick galleries back in 2007, so I trust her.
There’s also an after party slated at The Narrows between 10 and 12. I’ll be sitting that one out, a crime for which only the Guggenheim’s Young Collector’s Party can be blamed. Too much champagne can shorten one’s night life the day after.
