Just as a pink evening sky signals smooth sailing, winds from the east promise bad weather, and a new Future mixtape heralds a bountiful harvest, our weekly NYC Gallery Guide extends its hand to you and assures you this much: you’ve made it to Wednesday, friend. The coming two days may bring cataclysm and strife—spilled coffee, cramped commutes, and swarms of locusts—but that you’re reading this post means that you’ve made it halfway to the goalpost.

It also, means, of course, that you have some of the week’s most exciting gallery shows at your fingertips, so whip out that calendar (you know, the Degrassi-themed one) and plan your attack.

Our Picks

While those eager to dance on the author’s grave will want hop over to David Zwirner to scope a new group of works by Sherrie Levine, readers looking to indulge in the brutal and visceral are well-advised to visit Anna Ostoya’s Slaying at Bortolami (still glittering, we hope, from Ann Veronica Janssens). Toss in a trip to Mark Dion’s installation/aviary at Tanya Bonakdar, and you have yourself quite a week. But there’s more—oh, there’s more—and if you’re hard-pressed to get off that couch, you can always dive into ArtBinder Viewer, where an online world of artistic marvels awaits you.

Confused? Here’s how to use the map:

  • The map’s various colors represent different days of the week. For a key, click on the arrow icon next to the map title.
  • For example, to see galleries with openings on the weekend only, first click on the arrow icon. If you uncheck every box except Saturday and Sunday, you will only see the galleries with weekend receptions.
  • Click on a marker to find out more information! A side bar will appear showing the gallery and exhibition name, as well as other useful tidbits.
  • To prevent confusion for galleries in the same building, the marker takes a different shape for every overlapping venue.
