Our recommendations for you this week:

This evening, head down to where the party is at. Lower East Side has their round of openings today with Johannes Vogt Gallery beginning their group show Mi Casa, Tu Casa, and Denny Gallery with Brent Birnbaum’s 40+ repurposed mini-refrigerators stacked into totems of varied height. Drinks after? There’s Attaboy just nearby!

On Thursday, the Interstate Project has their opening for U:L:O: Part II and Clearing for their show Fritto Misto in Brooklyn. The galleries are conveniently located a few minutes walking distance from each other! But apart from the two shows, another opening to look forward to is Helen Frankenthaler’s solo exhibition at Anders Wahlstedt Fine Art on Upper East Side.

If you wish to leave the gallery hopping to Friday evening, there’s Miguel Abreu’s Aaron Flint Jamison on Lower East Side. Hungry for more? Find more shows to see in the map below!


Here’s how to use the Gallery Guide:

  • 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.
