While the Guerrilla Girls are in London chastising Europe’s man-centric art world,  we’re happy to report an all-too-rare week in New York that’s dominated by awesome female artists. Tuesday night Esther Ruiz is unveiling an installation at BAM, and the much-missed queer space Spectrum gets resurrected as The Dreamhouse in Ridgewood, with performances from Juliana Huxtable and more. Thursday night at Anna Zorina Gallery, Nadine Faraj’s solo show celebrates going topless as an act of political defiance, and Friday Robin Kang’s weavings at OUTLET demonstrate that textiles are still relevant to tech.

Spectacle Theater in Williamsburg is having a banner weekend, with a Friday night documentary about gender-redefining icon Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and a Saturday night screening of an experimental feminist revenge flick from Kat Hunt.

Hello Fans and Fans I haven’t made yet,

Collage is one of my many talents, though I don’t use it. All of the images you see here were taken by professional photographers in order to promote my performance work. I hope you enjoy this portfolio, documenting my illustrious career as rubberband-bodied mind janitor.

Even though there was a dusting of snow in Manhattan this morning, spring is truly here, as attested by this week’s round-up of events. For graduating students wrestling with the possibility of a post-May malaise regarding their art world career prospects, Devin Kenny’s free Tuesday lecture at Cooper Union on cultural personas through the ages may or may not help in navigating all this talk about artist personal branding. (Yes, we just wrote that unironically.) On Wednesday, BOMB Magazine launches its spring issue at Brooklyn’s Greenlight Bookstore with readings by issue 135 contributors Álvaro Enrigue and Kate Zambreno. Now 35 years old (!), its artists-talking-to-artist format remains timely and engaging. And Friday’s double openings at Postmasters — AFC SPRNG BRK Man Boobs winner Paul Outlaw with Jen Catron and Zach Gage — promises a boat ride through experience economy overload and Google search autocomplete poetry, respectively.

Finally, a manageable week for New York. If you survived Armory Week and still want to look at art, we salute you. Thankfully, this is a calm week for the city. While we’re busy preparing for our own Spring Break fundraiser next week, you can also unwind with some low-key art events. Thursday, check out several centuries of the macabre at Ricco/Maresca Gallery. Friday, return to the living with Genesis Breyer P-Orridge’s reincarnation-informed solo show at Rubin Museum of Art. Then head to the Bruce High Quality Foundation’s Sunset Park digs for an artist talk and party to kick off the BHQFU Book Fair. Be sure to come back Saturday for more readings, activities, and goodies from vendors. Sunday, check out Foxy Production’s new Chatham Square digs. Save your energy, though, because you’ll want it for our party next week!

Don’t be fooled by the normal-sized events list; this is just a sampling from the half million openings available to you in Chelsea on Wednesday and Thursday and the PS1 Book Fair, which will be putting on more panels and dialogues and conversations than are humanly consumable this weekend (the zine tent alone is an afternoon’s work). A Picasso sculpture exhibition and David Zwirner’s double solo shows by Isa Genzken and Wolfgang Tillmans are just a few we think will be spamming your Facebook in weeks to come.

Here’s what we expect to hear about next week: The ICA opens its new round of always-strong programming; Charles Ray debuts ginormous sculpture; prominent Russian artists/political activists get a double-whammy; and BAM debuts a look back at famed horror film director John Carpenter’s musical career. Other important events surrounding #BlackLivesMatter and female activism will probably play second fiddle, but maybe we can change that.

For those of us who didn’t get out much last year, we get to head to the White Columns Annual for the last round-up of everything we should’ve seen. Also in significant artworks from 2014: Godard’s 3D film “Goodbye to Language” is screening at BAM. Do not miss out. You can not pirate this on the Internet.
These, and more art events worth braving the cold.
