Start your week off with a dose of Civil Rights history Monday at IFC, where fierce pussy is screening The Black Power Mixtape and Wednesday at ICP, where Hettie Jones will be talking about what Making America Great really looks like. Thursday, we’re looking forward to two book launches. Andrea McGinty will be releasing her Ah Yes Bad Things at Printed Matter and Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art is throwing a party to celebrate the catalog for their current exhibition Queer Threads. Friday night there are mysterious but promising exhibitions opening all over Brooklyn. Then it’s DUMBO open studios all weekend. End the week with a day trip to New Haven (seriously, it’s a painless train ride) where Bortolami’s ARTIST/CITY program has paired Tom Burr with a Marcel Breuer masterpiece that now finds itself surrounded by an IKEA parking lot.

The world is a strange and wondrous place. We’ll see you out in it.

Even after a lazy and steamy Memorial Day, the art world shows no signs of slowing down for the summer. Returning rested, refreshed and ready to go, this week is flush with performances from Itziar Barrio’s The Perils of Obedience to András Böröcz’s satire of artist’s practices, Leitz & Fuchs Escape Through the Chimney, to Cayla Lockwood’s tasty Free*Sandwiches and the inimitable Yvonne Rainier at The Kitchen. If live performance isn’t your style, this week also boast openings like the sporty Children’s Museum of Arts’ Game On! and Sardine’s starry-eyed Space Oddity. 

And since it’s June, kick off Pride month with Visual AIDS’ First Saturday panel Women, Art, AIDS and Activism at the Brooklyn Museum and Natalie White For Equal Rights at WhiteBox. Who knows? Maybe you’ll feel radical enough to follow White on her two-week march down to D.C. starting July 8.

This Week’s Must-see Art Events: Dick Pics, GIFs, and Psychic TV

With a few exceptions, such as Lorna Mills’ At Play in the Field of the Lord opening Saturday at TRANSFER, there doesn’t seem to be an overwhelming number of great shows opening this week. Which is kind of nice, actually. Take some time get the most out of art instead of rushing around to see it all. Tomorrow night, head to James Concannon’s book launch and leisurely leaf through his collection of dick pics. Attend a lecture or take a tour with Visual AIDS and reminisce about the 80s. Head to a discussion about feminist art at Artists Space on Friday. And Saturday, spend six hours listening to experimental music and watching performances from Psychic TV and other genre-bending artists. If that hasn’t expanded your mind enough, head to MoMA on Sunday for a documentary about the surreal album art of Storm Thorgerson. After a few busy weeks, isn’t it nice to sit with art and relax?
