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!

The work of the wonderful Pipillotti Rist has won over New Yorkers at both the New Museum and in Times Square, and now a new event invites guests to hear from the artist herself as she closes out her much-lauded “Pixel Forest.” Also this week, Albertine at the French Embassy invites guests to their beautiful space for a talk between Frédéric Beigbeder and American novelist Jay McInerney on his new book. If you’re searching for affordable art, you can grab a work for $120 while also supporting Planned Parenthood and the ACLU at the MF GALLERY in Gowanus. Finally, head to sister galleries Last Rites and Booth Gallery, to discover new photography, and a realist group show, respectively.

This week, come join me as I present comic abstraction artist Ellanah Sadkin before heading to enjoy Eric Helvie’s film noir surrealist paintings in Chelsea. Untapped Cities wants to share Eldridge Street’s secrets with you, and Emilio Perez wants to bring you inside one of his paintings across the Times Square screens. Halloween is also upon us, and Last Rites does it right with a massive macabre show and after party. And if you want to keep the party going after, you can join nightlife legend Susanne Bartsch for her annual ball at MoMA PS1—or succumb to artist collective CHERYL on Monday at Le Poisson Rouge. Finally, get glamorous at the National Arts Club for the Accessible Art Fair, which is making its New York debut after a successful run in Brussels.

Last week’s blizzard Jonas may have made a fun day for jumping in snow piles, but it put a total damper on a bevy of artists waiting to present themselves to the hungry art world. This week, make up for lost time at Last Rites’ rescheduled Allison Sommers opening or the most popular winter pool party at the Grace Hotel, hosted by artist Annika Connor. Two LA artists with opposing views come together at Joseph Gross Gallery, while Katya Grokhovsky invites visitors to put their hands all over her exhibition. Peter Caine brings a pooping robotic Ronald Reagan to a gallery on the Lower East Side (enough said). Times Square Arts invites guests to meet their first artists in residence, and the Schomberg Center invites Basquiat fans to a talk relating his work to its effects on African Diasporic communities.
