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. Ahead Art Nerd founder Lori Zimmer shares her top event picks for 6sqft readers!

This week, take home a piece of Logan Hicks’ Bowery Wall at Taglialatella Gallery or a piece of Aurelie Guillaume’s jewelry at Reinstein Rose. Then experience the quiet beauty of horses at Emmanuel Fremin Gallery and express yourself at the Brooklyn Museum’s Art History Happy hour. Also this week, Korean artist Hyon Gyon gives insight into her latest exhibition at a talk at Shin Gallery, and Ricky Gervais hits the Times Center for what’s sure to be a thought-provoking conversation. Finally, let out some aggression at the Lunar New Year Chinese Firecracker Festival and then wind down in the beautiful Albertine for a talk on the city everyone seems to be moving to, Los Angeles.

A mix of cartoons, pop-imagery and even a little street art, Aurelie Guillaume’s art work is as wearable as it is narrative. I love the idea of the body becoming a vehicle for art (as much as I love sparkly jewelry).
