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 Week’s Must-See Art Events: Art from Pelham Bay to Fort Jay

Okay, now that we’re on the brink of September, New York is coming back to life. And what a life it is—from anarchist spots in Bushwick to mansions in the Bronx, holograms on Governors Island to museums is Astoria—we’ve dug deep to find you the best, weirdest, and most under-represented stuff to do this week across the city.

Tuesday is your last chance to see Cao Fei’s solo show at PS1, and she’s speaking at Pratt that evening. So take a G train jaunt from the museum to the Pratt campus and also catch the closing reception for their Fine Arts MFA thesis exhibition before the talk. Wednesday, get digital u/dys-topian thinking with the surreal architectural images of Dionisio Gonzalez at Galerie Richard and the new Anarcho Tech Collective at The Base. Thursday, Carolina Nitsch Project Room is hosting two projects spanning 50 years of collective Art & Language, and Zak Krevitt’s solo show at Ray Gallery takes viewers inside the world of the “puppy play” fetish.

Friday, the Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum in the Bronx is throwing an opening reception for its centennial garden celbration. The museum has commissioned over a dozen sculptures to respond to sites in its formal gardens. Saturday, head to another overlooked landmark across town: the Governor’s Island Art Fair is bringing work such as Julia Maria Sinelnikova glittery, tech-heavy installations to the historic Colonel’s Row. Then, World Money Gallery is hosting a two-artist salute to Bushwick’s litter (the last line of defense against gentrification?). Finally, spend Sunday unwinding in the serene Noguchi Museum, but don’t worry about spending money—it’s a free admission “Community Day.”

There’s finally no excuse to be bored this week. It’s a big city out there. Go explore!
