Let’s not sugarcoat this: Chelsea has become a glittering straight jacket for any artist who actually wants to experiment. The collector market tethers these artists to calculated production where artistic value and cost never seem to go hand in hand. This makes it hard to get too excited about opening night in Chelsea, and in fact, but for a handful of openings, we’re not. This is what we recommend.

There’s been a variety of fun and whimsical art events lately, but every once in a while there’s a week of substantive works which we’ll be thinking back on for years to come. Performa is one of those, and the online biennial “The Wrong” might be another. And after 41 years, this Tuesday’s event at the Clocktower Gallery may be your last opportunity to visit before it’s turned into luxury condos.

Time for round two of massive openings. After over a year, CANADA Gallery finally reopens in its new Broome street space, right across from P!. On Thursday night, Chelsea opens. On Friday night, something’s going down at the Redhook galleries, but we’re not sure what. And tomorrow, we hope Cleopatra’s doubles its benefit goals for artist, curator, and Dependent Fair founder Rose Marcus, to help her pay for major surgery–and so do many talented artists who’ve contributed to her benefit auction. All that, and more, after the jump!

Regina Rex’s summer show Four Paintings doesn’t label itself as a curated show, but it’s one of the more well-thought out shows I’ve seen this summer. This will be the second time the collective has offered a summer show in this format; last year’s Four Paintings show was similarly phenomenal.

With Independence Day on the horizon, it’s no surprise that every New York gallery and museum seems to be opening a new show, hosting a workshop, or putting on an art event. Next week, the art world retreats to the Hamptons. A focus on the collective seems to be the theme of choice this summer, be it collective practice at Klaus Von Nichtssagend, collective movement at the EFA, or simply an art collective at the Brooklyn Museum.

We’re feeling pretty lazy after the fairs, so lucky for us, our art has come pre-bundled. This week: three fairs are still open, Eyebeam launches its video festival, and PS1 continues its Expo on ecology. On Saturday, we get to choose between Redhook and Bushwick. Now all we need is a piggy back.

Why has the Dependent, our favorite New York art fair, been so quiet lately? For the last two years, the hotel fair had been held during Armory week, but now doesn’t even have a website.
