This week’s expectedly slow post-ABMB madness, so let’s take a moment to recognize the hard work of art handlers, who had to pack up and deliver all those art fair works. Appropriately enough, the Art Handlers Alliance of New York is hosting a happy hour tonight at Brooklyn’s Interference Archive to talk shop and fair wages. Tomorrow, pick between a big screening of a Hollywood blockbuster (Ridley Scott’s The Martian at MoMA), or a panel discussion parsing Robert Frank’s The Americans (Further Down the Line at Lisa Cooley). Thursday and Friday mark digital art openings at the Pratt Manhattan Gallery (the Christiane Paul-curated surveillance-minded group show, Little Sister) and Postmasters (Kristin Lucas and Joe McKay’s user designer mishaps Away From Keyboard). Post-Postmasters opening, get your fill on turtlenecks with the launch of Catharine Maloney’s Teleplay, Part I photographic series at Printer Matter.

And, since this is December, the weekend promises holiday markets: Saturday’s Tropic-Aire at Regina Rex sounds like, in the words of Michael a “love child from a one-night-stand between a suburban holiday craft fair and NADA”, and Sunday’s Holiday Intercourse at Pioneer Works gives you a good reason to head out to Red Hook.

The Cat Show at White Columns has everything and nothing to do with cats. Everything, because most of the 134 artworks show cats or cat-related ephemera—like litter boxes, scratching posts, or yarn. Nothing, because the themes of many of these works aren’t about cats at all.

Half the Lower East Side transplanted itself in Miami this week for NADA, so we decided to join them. We spent most of yesterday hanging out with the 70 plus international exhibitors at the fair, and have a slideshow with commentary to show for it. What we liked below.
