If ever there was a week for art nerds, this is it. It begins Tuesday with a screening of artist made music-videos Otion Front Studio and a show of meticulously assembled abstract paper works by Jessica Dickinson and Alison Knowles at James Fuentes. Paper nerds and music nerds unite. By Friday, gallery goers will be heading to Transfer Gallery to witness a room full of projectors showcasing a playlist of works by a dozen or more new media artists.  New Media nerds rejoice.

In between all this nerdery, there are also quite a few exhibitions promising a good time, not the least of which being our very own Strange Genitals, which opens this Thursday at AICAD. Following this, is the always provocative Marilyn Minter at the Brooklyn Museum come Friday and Jennifer Catron and Paul Outlaw’s performance looking at how the relationship between gravity and politics leads to the break-down of thought.

And though there are some Western European additions (mostly from Berlin), Art Basel’s press release notes that nearly half of this year’s exhibitors are from the Americas, making the Miami Beach show “the premier destination for galleries from the United States and Latin America.” That includes a couple more local Florida galleries and Chicago’s Corbett vs. Dempsey, which was added to the Nova section.

In every “We Went To” post, we leave out a handful of shows that don’t leave much for the imagination or discussion. By now, we figure that ignoring them doesn’t help anyone. This week’s skippables: James Fuentes, Blackston, and Participant, Inc. Those we included: Simon Preston Gallery, Invisible Exports, and Joe Sheftel.
