We have entered the sticky doldrums of New York in August. But although plenty of galleries are taking it slow this month, artists and institutions are creatively adapting their practices to beloved Summer pastimes—from a cookout at the Abrons Arts Center tomorrow to a nice, refreshing dip (in a mud pit) at The Palms Friday night. But if air conditioning is your thing, head to a cool, dark movie theater on Wednesday night for video art from the likes of Petra Cortright and Fake Injury Party. Unlike most CGI-filled Summer blockbusters, this is a benefit for the Bruce High Quality Foundation University. If all this weeknight relaxation has you ready to head back to the world of galleries by the time the weekend rolls around, check out solo shows from Joshua Caleb Weibley at Transfer and perpetual AFC favorite Jaimie Warren at American Medium. Stay hydrated, New York.
