In a past life, Mexico City’s Museo Universitario Del Chopo was a punk flea market. Today, it’s gone back to it roots (kinda).
Punk. Sus rastros en el arte contemporáneo is a fantastic survey of both punk and its impact on contemporary art. But when so much of that influence has been on video art, the logic of a gallery presentation is questionable.
The show feels a bit like it should be a film festival but has been squeezed into a white box. Good luck trying to sit through more than a dozen videos with overlapping sound on different loops.

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. It’s Bushwick Open Studios this weekend, which means the most democratic of all New York art events will inevitably be paired with lots local culture. 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.
