This week in events is all Gowanus Open Studios. We’ve got the Beat Nite Gallery Crawl Friday, the open studios Saturday and Sunday, and the pulp and paper printing madness on Saturday. It’s going to be a fun weekend!

There’s lots to do this week too, but our big pick for the week is Walid Raad’s solo show at MoMA. His work deals with art and conflict in the Middle East, and given the disaster that’s taking over that part of the world, the timing couldn’t be better. It opens today.

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?

If you’re paying $30 to attend a Keith Haring exhibition, you’d at least expect that exhibition to show some real Keith Harings. That wasn’t the case with “Haring Miami”. Florida state court, at the behest of The Keith Haring Foundation, ordered the removal of 165 allegedly inauthentic artworks.

More from the Keith Haring Journals. Just for starters, “I can't believe that some people are so shallow as to worry about whether one person, like Saatchi, collects me or not,” says Haring. “How can one person be an important determiner of what is good or not? In fact, if someone is trying to use their power or collecting to impose their taste and standardize the taste of the entire culture, then I think they are the most suspicious suspects of all.”

I’ve never cared much for the work of Keith Haring, so perhaps its fitting that the artist whose work most resembles that made by a robot worried about a computer takeover. An excerpt from the Keith Haring Journals after the jump.
