Art Nerd New York’s Top Event Picks for the Week – 12/3-12/7

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! With half of the art world in Miami for Art Basel, this week is a good time to support the local artists and artisans who make this city great. Check out the cross stitch work of Phil Davison at FUCHS Projects. Become part of the art yourself at artist collective CHERYL's latest soiree, which welcomes all walks of life to immerse themselves in art while dancing the night away. Give your nose a treat at the interesting Museum of Feelings, a temporary museum sponsored by Glade that fuses scent with emotion. Experience a musical light show by 650 lanterns at Brookfield Place. Learn about self portraiture in photography at the Camera Club of New York. Test your limits of participation at the debut of Marina Abramovic's new project, in which the artist has created an installation and platform for listening to Igor Levit perform Goldberg. And finally, see a live performance of "A Christmas Carol" by WXQR that features actress Kathleen Turner.

Performance Artist Marina Abramović Sells her Urban Glass House Apartment for $3 Million

You might have expected the apartment of Marina Abramović to be intense and dark with large, empty spaces for the world-renowned performance artist to create her highly experimental work, but instead her home is pleasant and light-filled with contemporary furnishings and pops of color. She's leaving the two-bedroom, corner unit at the Urban Glass House, though, as it's sold for $2.995 million, according to city records.
