In a city where hundreds of interesting happenings occur each week, it can be hard to pick and choose your way to a fulfilling life. Art Nerd‘s philosophy is a combination of observation, participation, education and of course a party to create the ultimate well-rounded week. Jump ahead for Art Nerd founder Lori Zimmer’s top picks for 6sqft readers!

Get lost in Fidan Bagirova’s recycled metal flower fields at The Untitled Space, or release your inhibitions at the hedonistic LUST dinner and performance (at its new location in Bushwick). See the 18-year-old who has been wowing Europe at Avant Garde LES, then raise a glass to the self-proclaimed Crown Prince of Hell, who happens to make shiny Mylar installations. Artist duo Stephen Hall and Rob Plater debut a new series of their collaborative paintings, and story tellers weave tales at Bread and Yoga. The National Arts Club hosts another rendition of The Art Conference out of London, and the Museum of the City of New York opens for an epic 32 hours straight to kick of their Gotham Groove: New York at Its Core exhibition.
