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?

The prints are here! Tuesday night Art F City launched our one-night-only exhibition and reception of Rachel Stern’s “Nude Artists as Pandas” at Sargent’s Daughters. One of New York’s fastest rising stars, Stern has shown at Daniel Cooney Fine Art, Invisible Exports, and Humble Arts Foundation. This summer, she spent two months in Maine, at one of the world’s most prestigious residencies, Skowhegan.

The launch attracted art-worlders shot by Stern such as Martha Wilson, Nayland Blake, Jason Andrews, and Allegra LaViola along with luminaries like William Powhida, Ben Davis and Kat Griefen. All were recorded for posterity by photographer Christian Grattan.

The series above is available as a suite of 12 limited-edition photographs or as individual prints. For purchase options visit our donation page. For more information reach out to paddy@artfcity.com.

Editor’s note: Even we get sick of our own opinions. So rather than send one person to survey an event as large as the New York Art Book Fair, we asked a handful of artists, writers, curators, and designers for their picks. Good news: they came back to us with an indispensable reading list based on decades of experience and reflection. We know what we’re getting for Christmas this year.
