Bjarne Melgaard is going through a reinvention phase, which means he’s giving away his entire $500K wardrobe for free on Valentine’s Day at Red Bull Studios. Then he’s launching his new project: a streetwear line with an installation a department store at the same spot Thursday night. Then two painters offer unique takes on domesticity through still lives—Sydney Licht at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts and Crys Yin at Amy Li Projects.

Friday night, things get weirder with a dystopian video game from Jeremy Couillard at yours mine & ours, artwork lost in translation at Tiger Strikes Asteroid, and a late-night performance from Actually Huizenga and one-time-AFC-contributor SSION (video above). The weekend brings two more all-women shows conceived in response to Trump’s sexism: BODY/HEAD Saturday night at Be Fluent NYC and BEAT at On Stellar Rays Sunday afternoon. Lookin’ good, NYC.

If you were to start at the corner of NE 36th and 1st in Miami’s Wynwood Art District, and start walking towards the Miami Project, the directions might look a little like this: Start with the glowing white tent of the Brazil Art Fair on your left, and walk south, past the glowing white tents of the CONTEXT Art Fair, Red Dot Art Fair, and Art Miami. If you hit SPECTRUM Miami or the ArtSpot Art Fair, you’ve gone too far. One begins to suspect there are a few too many satellite fairs.
