NYC Weekend to Do: Art Edition
With all of the art-related happenings in the city this week, we thought we’d share some of the fairs, exhibits, and events some of our staff plan to check out over the weekend.
Several team members plan to spend a day at the Armory Show, now in its 15th year, over at Pier 92 & 94, while others will be heading to SCOPE to view the work of emerging artists.Our Chelsea staff is looking forward to checking out Independent, happening just a couple of blocks from our 10th Avenue shop.
Our Chelsea neighbors Printed Matter, who were hit hard by Sandy, will be hosting an exhibition and auction at the Robert Rauschenberg Project Space to raise money to help mitigate the loss of several art works, books, archives, and equipment. You can check out the works up for auction here and place bids online through tomorrow.
The US premiere of Grabigouji: A Life of Disappearance, filmmaker Brigitte Cornand’s cinematic portrait of legendary sculptor Louise Bourgeois at Florence Gould Hall tonight. As longtime fans of the late artist, we’re really looking forward to this one.
Tribeca-based artist Richard Nonas’ first solo exhibition in New York in five years opens today at James Fuentes on the Lower East Side. As part of the Anarchitecture Group in the 1970′s along with contemporaries Gordon Matta Clarck and Richard Serra, Nonas was a key figure in the downtown art scene and is still working today. In addition to a selection of preexisting pieces from his studio, the exhibition will feature several new works.This entry was posted on Friday, March 8th, 2013 at 5:20 pm and is filed under Events, In the Neighborhood.
