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.

Summer is winding down, but we’re not ready to move back indoors. Jump a ferry and celebrate the season’s end on Governors Island with an old fashioned oyster shuck. Get down (silently) outside at the Coney Island Art walls at the Quiet Clubbing Festival, or join artist Santhori in making a giant mural at the park on East 1st Street. Stretch out and appreciate Times Square on Jurgen Mayer H’s XXX easy chairs, then head to the Bowery Wall to find your friends in Logan Hicks’ giant new mural. Finally, the gallery prince of darkness JJ Brine is bringing his Vector Gallery back to New York, and two artists are turning Brooklyn’s Ground Floor Gallery into a giant loom installation.
