10 Things to Do for Less Than $10 in NYC This Weekend
The countdown to spring (March 20, if you're keeping track) begins this weekend. Spring means love and better weather, and both are in the air. Here's how to celebrate them: Urban Park Rangers will host an evening of gazing at the stars with a "Night Sky" talk at Belvedere Castle, in Central Park. Also, in honor of PS1's Spring Preview, Patti Smith will be in attendance to commemorate Christoph Schlingensief's show, a one-night only Whitney (Houston) Biennial will take place at A.I.R. Gallery, and Jim Campbell's exhibition that features interactive video, and LED technology, installations opens tonight at the Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery.
"Deep Sleep" by Logan Hicks, on display at PMM Art Projects.
(Reminder: daylight saving time will begin at 2 a.m. Sunday, you're welcome)
[Art] Jim Campbell's "New Work" exhibition will focus on his most recent series of sculptural light installations. The work by the former filmmaker investigates the use of LED technology to produce immersive, illuminated, and sculptural environments "that vividly record and recalibrate the presence of time in relation to light, space, and the human condition." Opening reception tonight at 6 p.m., Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery, Chelsea, free.
[Art] Equal parts urban adventurer, stencil artist, and photographer, Brooklyn's multitalented Logan Hicks has new work on display at a popup exhibition on the Lower East Side by PMM Art Projects. Known for stenciling surreal floating figures onto dark cityscapes, Hicks has titled his latest project "Love Never Saved Anything." He promises photos that depict "forbidden areas of the urban environment and unique vantage points," as well as intricately layered stencils inspired by underwater photography and the feeling of being "adrift in a sea of uncertainty." At 6:30 p.m., PMM Art Projects, Lower East Side, free.
[Comedy] Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction, a comedy show and podcast based in Los Angeles, is happening tonight and guests include Bridget Everett, Travon Free, Max Silvestri, Claudia Cogan, Kara Klenk, Mike Drucker, Eli Sairs, Chesley Calloway, Kenny DeForest, and Will Miles. At 7:30 p.m., Union Hall, Brooklyn, $10
