10 Things to Do for Less Than $10 in NYC This Week
Events this week run the gamut, from a peep show at the Bell House to a new monthly party called "Famous In Bushwick," which is actually taking place in Manhattan (weird, but whatever). There's also an incredible art installation by Moyra Davey at Murray Guy gallery near the High Line, and a historic examination into the coolest look of all, the leather jacket, at the Museum at FIT.
MOYRA DAVEY: 'Ornament and Reproach', through April 5 at Murray Guy
Tuesday, March 11
[Fashion] Anyone in a leather jacket automatically looks hot, not kidding. But a further examination into this desired style is Beyond Rebellion: Fashioning the Biker Jacket, a show organized by graduate students at the Fashion Institute of Technology, which explores the genesis of the biker jacket and its evolution into a high-fashion garment. Clothing from leading labels such as Jean Paul Gaultier, Yves Saint Laurent, and Rick Owens is featured. Opens at noon, The Museum at FIT, Garment District, free.

[Art] For her third solo show at Murray Guy gallery, photographer, filmmaker, and writer Moyra Davey presents a new iteration of a recent exhibition at Presentation House Gallery in Vancouver, organized in collaboration with John Goodwin. "In Ornament and Reproach", the gallery is transformed into a space of contemplative dialogue between artist and curator. Over the course of the last year, Davey took photographs in and around Trinity Church Cemetery near her home in Washington Heights, and sent the prints to Goodwin. Davey has previously had exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Biennial 2012. Opens at 10 a.m., Murray Guy, Flatiron, free.
