Skip the blockbuster museum shows and blue chip galleries; what makes New York so great is access to the under-exposed. Tonight, hear a lecture at Asia Art Archive in America about the little-known influence of Seattle modernists on the career of art star Yayoi Kusama. Tuesday, go check out poetry and art at Outlet—part of an exhibition I’m convinced is on the cutting edge of a sea change regarding artists’ relationship with place. Wednesday, traverse a secret garden for a chance to see a performance by Otion Front Studio artist in residence La Martelle, which will be performed for just two groups of twelve people at a time. Thursday, go play a quick game of basketball with the New Art Dealers Association. Then, head to Rhizome for a lecture about the emerging ontology of digital painting or hop on the F train to check out off-the-beaten-path art spaces in DUMBO’s First Thursday Gallery Walk. Friday night, head to Tender Trap in Greenpoint, where bi-coastal gallery Superchief is throwing a pop-up exhibition of Penelope Gazin’s trippy horror-pop illustrations. And Saturday, load up on affordable multiples and zines from DIY presses from across the East Coast at The Silent Barn.

The news come as a blow to the two art organizations, who joined forces last year in the hopes of ensuring that the administration of the new .ART Domain would be an authentic Internet address for the arts community. Of the total 10 applicants, e-flux and DeviantArt were the only two who had applied for “community designation”, as there was expressed concern regarding the potential for the domain to be exploited by commercial interests.

Despite a widely distributed online campaign —including e-flux’s letter of endorsement from curators and artists worldwide as well as support from DeviantArt’s 31 million+ users — there had been internal debate in the art world with e-flux running the campaign at all.

More after the jump.
