10 Things to Do for Less Than $10 in NYC This Week
Wednesday, April 30
[Art] A site-specific installation by Rome-based artist Gonzalo Orquin. This installation re-creates the artist's exhibit that was intended for a private gallery in Rome in late 2013. However, "Sí, quiero" was never seen: Authorities at the Vatican objected to the original photographs and threatened legal action against the gallery. The Vatican claimed the images showed "expressions of affection that do not belong in a place of worship." The Leslie-Lohman Museum installation will be on visible from the street in the Wooster Street Window Gallery 24 hours a day. Museum opens at noon, Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art, free.
[Art] She may be 78, but Ultra Violet, an heiress from France who became Salvador Dalí's muse and a Warhol Superstar, hasn't dimmed a bit. Just in time for the Factory's 50th anniversary, "Ultra Violet: The Studio Recreated" brings together the contents of her Chelsea studio, including paintings, prints, sculptures, neon works, and photos of her with her many famous friends. You'll also find books, tape recordings, and films, including her early film Last Supper, which screened at the Kitchen in 1972, and her more recent Self Portraits (2004). --Angela Ashman. Gallery opens at 10 a.m., Dillon Gallery, free.
