That right there, pictured above, is James Franco doing his best to channel Cindy Sherman's famous "Untitled Film Stills" series for his latest art contribution, fittingly titled "Film Stills." His opening reception is on Thursday, among many (many) other events going on. So go ahead and double-book every day this week. You're a New Yorker: Complain about your busy social life, but keep up.

Ryan Muir Yolk
[Dance] Third Rail Projects, the creators of the immersive theater hit Then She Fell and Roadside Attraction, a touring work, perform the world premiere of Yolk, a new 50-minute movement-based installation commissioned by Arts Brookfield, on midtown's bustling Grace Plaza. A bit about the show: As workers and tourists enjoy an early springtime lunch, two performers emerge and transform themselves within the confines of a fragile shell. At 12:30 p.m., through Thursday, Grace Building Plaza, free.
[Film/Recreation] Did you realize it's 60 degrees today? Take your bike out for a spin and head to tonight's Time's Up Movie Night: "Funny Bike Shorts." Enjoy short films about bicycles, of course, and snack on popcorn and beer. At 7:30 p.m., XUP Brooklyn Space, Brooklyn, free.
[Poetry] In just two years, Plume has become one of the most respected and influential online poetry journals. Tonight's reading features contributors including Sophie Cabot Black, Nicole Cooley, Grace Schulman, D. Nurkse, and Tom Sleigh. At 7 p.m., Housing Works Bookstore, free.
