Well, we hope the art world had a good summer vacation because school is officially back in session. There are so many good shows opening on Thursday night in Chelsea we just couldn’t list them all—Matthew Barney at Gladstone, Rashid Johnson at Hauser & Wirth and Lynda Benglis at Cheim & Read, to name a few.

We’ve focused on the absolute can’t-miss openings and those that might get overlooked below. From Wednesday night’s opening exhibition on the work and collaborative legacy of early digital/conceptual artist Alison Knowles at The Graduate Center to Thursday night’s absolute must-see double exhibition of Meleko Mokgosi [pictured] at both of Jack Shainman’s Chelsea locations there’s plenty to see and do.

But to offer a quick summary of where the most openings which nights, expect to spend Wednesday on the LES, Thursday in Chelsea, and Friday, Saturday and Sunday rushing from neighborhood to neighborhood. This should be a good week for Uber.

Roll through Bushwick and experience artisanal cheese doodles, mobile vintage clothing stores, and bars as far as the eye can see.

We’ll publish a separate post dedicated to those events shortly, but in the meantime we’ve got a bunch of show recommendations that have nothing to do with BOS: Indulge your penchant for nostalgia with a rock and roll puppet show set in the late 60’s. Explore the world of mobile phone art. Brace yourself for a multichannel immersive video game experience. Even without BOS, there’s no free time in our schedules. There shouldn’t be any in yours either.

The Copenhagen Art Festival: Floundering Communities

“This is not a biennial” Festival Manager Lene Crone Jensen told the press gravely last week at the Copenhagen Art Festival. Coulda fooled me; the Copenhagen Art Festival already has the generic biennial-specific themes and inflated art-speak to make the transition an easy one should it so chose. “What are the implications of constituting a discourse of communities?” asks a bit of copy on the Copenhagen Art Festival website, as it describes the community minded-theme of the festival. It sounds like biennial.

Whatever it is, it’s not especially remarkable.
