Cancel whatever you’re doing at 7 PM tonight, readers. Paddy Johnson will be critiquing the finalists of ArtPrize, in the 3D and time-based categories. (Peruse the finalists here. Watch the Livestream here.) The stakes are high; we expect some animated debate to light up twitter tonight.

It’s hard to imagine a busier culture week for New York than this one. AFC’s Whitney Kimball is about to unleash our gallery opening picks for this week alone – oddly enough Lisa Yuskavage at David Zwirner is on our list of shows to see (we, like everybody else, enjoy crotch shots and boobs) — and both the NY Art Book Fair and The New Yorker Festival will run Friday through Sunday.
