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.

It’s August. Very few people are having openings. Which is okay, because you can catch up on some other activities. Such as reading and sports! Head to Printed Matter’s pop-up on Tuesday, then head down to Basketball City for a friendly game with the folks from NADA. Wednesday, the Con Artist Collective is having a $99 art sale in the spirit of a Lower East Side Bodega. Thursday, the New Museum has all sorts of techy delights as they unveil New INC projects and Carter Burden Gallery is hosting a trifecta of medium-specific shows. End the night at the Brooklyn Museum, where Juliana Huxtable will be DJing from within a Tom Sachs installation (uh, hello all my favorite things!). Friday, identity politics gets graphic with Sean O’Connor’s wallpaper-like paintings of homoerotic sports stuff at the Leslie Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art and Carla Cubit’s Black Lives Matter posters at chashama.

The Queens Museum is on-point with public programming on Saturday, from plastic bag portraits from Nobutaka Aozaki in Flushing and artist tours of Newtown Creek, where many plastic bags have been flushed. And Sunday, there’s Alma Thomas’s dreamy abstract watercolors uptown at the Studio Museum or some timely dystopian cinema at BAM. Thank you, institutions, for giving us stuff to do while the Chelsea crowd is off using “summer” as a verb.

This is a great week for some of the more obscure haunts around the city. Not only are the DIY venues bringing some good programming but we have a lot of stuff to check out at museums that don’t get as much attention as the big guys.

We start the week off with a cyborg sex lecture, move into what will probably be an excellent drawing show of found speaker screens and finish out with a mobile sound installation and zine fest. Mark your calendars, this is a good one.

Yes, this is a Lorna Mills GIF.

Legacies, transitions and milestones loom largely in this week’s slate of events. Black History Month kicks off in Harlem tonight at the Schomburg Center with a panel featuring Juliana Huxtable and Kimberly Drew among others dwelling on Basquiat’s life and legacy. Further on the BHM-related tip, decolonial knowledge is dropped by Tabita Rezaire at MoCADA’s Window Gallery, and the representation of black and queer personhood is re-assessed in Sondra Perry’s selection of video works for MoMA PS1’s Sunday Session.
