This week, work up a sweat learning the art of “waacking” at Otion Front Studio from dancer Coco Motion. Then, reward yourself with dinner and a movie at Postmasters Gallery. Are you the kind of person who Instagrams your food? If so, you might learn a little something about social media and our capacity for connection from AFC friend Molly Soda. Her show SAME opens Thursday night at Stream.

But really, the weekend is all about painting, painting, painting. It kicks off Friday night with paintings on cardboard and paintings of plastic at Trestle Gallery. From a Conor Backman solo show upstate to an all-painting exhibition of 50 artists in Bed-Stuy, there’s painting everywhere on Saturday. There’s so much paint happening, cans of it are starting to bulge out of canvases.

Yesterday was a bad day for art. Gagosian announced they will be hiring Derek Blasberg, Editor-at-Large for Harper’s Bazaar, to do lord knows what (I mean that literally, as he’s not got a position), and Hudson, the founder of Feature Inc., died. The first bit of bad news isn’t worth much discussion. Blasberg is just another jewel in an empire that values culture by the money and influence it has behind it, not the ideas it contributes to society. Hudson was different. He cared about art just as much as the business, and in these times, that kind of loss will be felt.
