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!

This week, check out the latest hotel to get turned onto art when London’s Pure Evil starts his residency at The Quin, or discover tomorrow’s art star at Hunter’s MFA exhibition. Julia Biasi brings her energetic paintings to Brilliant Champions, Chinatown Soup opens up for a panel discussion, and Jasmin Charles starts a residency at Catinca Tabacaru (with a lot of performances and programming). Go big and take the train to Hudson for 24-Drone, an immersive sound experience, or dedicate your Saturday night to the Guggenheim, where Matthew Barney, Fischerspooner and Elmgreen & Dragset will join others to discuss pairings. Round it out with a chance to learn pottery throwing (while drinking) for a good cause.

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 your rest, because there’s a full week of art activities awaiting. First, hop over to the High Line to experience the new LED kinetic sculpture, then experience a giant cat judging you (as it should be) every night in Times Square for #MidnightMoment. Artist and lab anatomy instructor Frank Porcu shares his unique vision at the Lodge, and Jong Oh talks minimalism at Marc Straus–and then serves Korean food! Curator Jessica Holborn explores the healing power of the embrace, and Annika Connor talks about her new book and tips for artists navigating the rough and tough art world. Wait in line for standby tickets to see Grace Jones’ 1982 “A One Man Show” at the Kitchen, then cozy up at the adorable Roger Smith Hotel for their winter art opening.
