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.

Revisiting the ‘Simple Net Art Diagram’, reviewing an art fair’s virtual tour, calling out Georg Baselitz, breaking news on the USC MFA Class, and even bringing back nerdocracy. Readers, we truly feel a real sense of accomplishment for the stories we wrote in 2015, especially after amassing them in a ‘Best of’ list such as this. We not only paid artists to attend art fairs, but also investigated sexism is arts publishing and even had two Renaissance cosmetics experts dish on body hair removal. Who else publishes this shit? No one.

This Week’s Must-See Art Events: Resisting Christmas is Futile

As expected, there’s not much happening this week, with the exception of this Friday being the warmest 25th we’ve likely experienced in our lifetime. Worrying about rising global temperatures possibly segues nicely into Monday’s talk supporting an exhibition of Alberto Korda photography capturing Fidel Castro’s 1959 and 1960 US visits, given the recent thawing of US-Cuban foreign relations. Winter solstice on Tuesday inspires Magali Duzant’s live-streaming sunsets at Local Project Artist Space and a chance to get those artist-made gifts wrapped at the second edition of Aura Rosenberg and Cara Benedetto’s Wrapping Room at Shoot The Lobster. The expected slowdown really begins mid-week, but we got you covered with a Manoel de Oliviera MoMA screening, this week’s only opening (The Jew As The Other at Abrazo Interno) and a couple closings. Post-Christmas, we’re excited about Sunday’s Art School Acid Dropout, promising a drink-and-draw of comedy performers.

Let’s be honest: With Thanksgiving and Art Basel just around the corner, there’s dick all to do around here. Nobody is opening their show this week and if they are it’s something really weird. Naturally we found that for you: Art School Acid Dropout invites stand up comedians tell stories while art school drop-outs illustrate the stories. The rest are talks, screenings and closings: Adeola Enigbokan lectures on her Renters Archive project tonight, where she chronicles the personal histories of rents after the second World War. Saturday MoMA screens “Goodnight Mommy” a terrifying film about two children who believe their mother is an imposter after she returns home with a botched plastic surgery job. And if that doesn’t suit your fancy there’s always the NOoSPHERE closing. The nonprofit art space that focuses on international collaborations and exposure for artists from Norway will move from the LES to Greenpoint. This is their current space’s last hurrah.
