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.
