Finally, a week in New York City where there’s at least one totally worthwhile, low-key art event every night without too many #FOMO -inducing major scheduling conflicts. We’ve picked out the best of the best, including such different activities as a pop-up opening party at Babycastles with a Kawaii nail art bar on Monday night and an artist talk from painter Keltie Ferris at the New York Studio School on Tuesday.

Wednesday, check out Lauren Marsolier’s suburban surrealestate at Galerie Richard, and Thursday night head to the West SoHo zone for solo shows from Sam McKinniss and Philip Vanderhyden at Team Gallery and Mumbo’s Outfit, respectively. Friday gets a little more hectic, with an exhibition of the late, great Tetsumi Kudo’s work at Andrea Rosen, an architectural “performance” from Gabrielle Mertz at the LES’s former PS160, and a group show about intimacy and craft at 315 Gallery in Brooklyn.

Saturday, two group shows open in a former Pfizer plant on Flushing Ave (where we expect artists to take full advantage of the post-industrial setting) and Sunday Pierogi has a solo show of drawings by John O’Connor. What a good week, and just think—you’ll have bomb nails for all of it.

This is a great week for some of the more obscure haunts around the city. Not only are the DIY venues bringing some good programming but we have a lot of stuff to check out at museums that don’t get as much attention as the big guys.

We start the week off with a cyborg sex lecture, move into what will probably be an excellent drawing show of found speaker screens and finish out with a mobile sound installation and zine fest. Mark your calendars, this is a good one.

This Week’s Must See Events: Feminist Icons and the Mechanics of the Gaze

Need a break from relentless election coverage? Too bad. You’re going to have to wait until November for that—and definitely skip a few art events. And we don’t recommend doing that, because this week feminist icons Martha Wilson and Martha Rosler will speak at Pratt. Given that both their work smartly addresses politics, the subject is sure to come up in discussion and will likely offer a few illuminating perspectives. We’re looking forward to it.

Other highlights in our wheelhouse: tech shows! MVR 3 at Babycastles and Mark Dorf and Sara Ludy at SVA will have you covered. Also—the gaze! Anne Collier’s photographs at Anton Kern often picture the mechanics of reproduction—think image of an eye in paper cutter. They creep us out, but in just the right way.

This week, we’re seeing a bunch of digital events outside of the usual haunts. Post-Internet darling Harm van der Dorpel will bring new work to Bed-Stuy’s American Medium, Aram Bartholl will show us all how to make athletic-looking smartphone headbands, and Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto will be celebrated with vodka, potatoes, and art at an apartment gallery in Queens.
