10 Weekend Ideas Under $10: "Framed!," Mini Record Fair, and The Beatles Invasion
We're not sure about you, but we're not looking forward to watching the Winter Olympics, so rather than be glued to the tube, here's what's going on this weekend. Two great art openings are happening tonight, including Elisa Kreisinger's "Framed" at Kianga Ellis Projects, as well as Derek Rippe's "Making Fun" at Bunnycutlet Gallery. Also, lots of Beatles-related celebratory shows and films, and Videology's screening of The Notebook, because Valentine's Day is soon upon us, so get in the romantic spirit, or else!
Derek Rippe Good Grief
At 7 p.m., The Paper Box, Brooklyn, $10.
[Party] Creators Connect, the online community where creators find collaborators, hosts tonight's Creation is Love II party that includes music, art, and tarot. Devendra Banhart and DIIV serve up DJ sets along with other live musical guests. Josh Schneider reads poetry, and WITCHES of Bushwick perform tarot card readings. Open bar, too!
At 7 p.m., Apple Store, free.
[Talk] It's Fashion Week, in case you haven't noticed, so fittingly the Soho Apple Store hosts a Apple's Fashion in Conversation series. This evening's guests include Refinery29.com co-founders Justin Stefano and Philippe von Borries discussing the success of their fashion start-up site.
Opening reception at 7 p.m., Bunnycutlet Gallery, Brooklyn, free.
[Art] The work by Nebraska-born, New York-based artist Derek Rippe is one big playful array of design at its best. His first solo show, "Making Fun," exemplifies his talent as a trained animator, with a decade of illustration and toy-designing experience behind him. He is also a children's product developer, which clearly influences the character-driven imagery in his fine art work.
Opening reception at 7 p.m., Kianga Ellis Projects, free.
[Art] Elisa Kreisinger takes on complex matters such as copyright and property law in her show "Framed! The attack on fair use and digital artists on the Internet." Several of her pieces are mash-ups of images, videos, and music gathered on the internet, including a remix of Jay-Z's "Picasso Baby" and Taylor Swift's "22."
At 11 a.m., Sculpture Center, Queens, $5 suggested donation ($3 for students).
[Dance] Chance Motives, which is guest curated by Kari Rittenbach, explores the possibilities for rupture within the ongoing performances of daily life and labor through techniques of orchestration and choreography. Participants include Vanessa Anspaugh, Ben Thorp Brown, Brendan Fernandes, Pedro Neves Marques, Sahra Motalebi, Daniel Neumann, Essex Olivares, Nick Paparone, Rachel Rose, Hayley Aviva Silverman, Conrad Ventur, and Laura Vitale.
