Welcome once again to a new edition of Friday, Saturday, Sunday, the post with the most to share with you about upcoming gallery and art events this weekend. Our aim is to get you off the couch and out of your local pub to absorb some culture and support your local art community. We have hand selected some really great shows this weekend!
Friday, January 11th
Elizabeth Riggle: Part is parts: Studies for a Vertebral Opera, hosted by Art 101- This show features a series inspired by a clinical anatomy study that grew into something much more elaborate. The artist compares the spine to an intricately planned operetta, describing each vertebra as “individual characters” whose “interactions began to imply possibilities for the opera’s libretto.”
Visit the opening from 6-9pm, @ 101 Grand Street, between Berry and Wythe in Brooklyn.
Saturday, January 12th
Rosemarie Trockel: A Cosmos, has been on display at the New Museum for quite some time, and as the exhibition comes to and end, Cabinet magazine invites visitors to explore a world of animals at a special event inspired by J.B.S. Hladane’s essay “On Being the Right Size.” Going from smallest to largest, An afternoon of Fauna will observe the scientific, literary, and cultural implications that animal forms are capable of communicating.
2-6pm @ The New Museum, 235 Bowery, New York NY
J. Morrison, Homocats: Fight the Power, hosted by The Bureau of General Services, Queer Division- J. Morrison uses the ever increasingly popular meme of the internet cat “as a vehicle to address political concerns in a very accessible manner.” Through nonchalant and playful humor, they attempt to “counteract phobias, propose equal rights, and brazenly challenge social norms.”
Opening reception from 6-9, with onsite screenprinting of a free commemorative edition by the artist! @ Strange Loop Gallery, 27 Orchard Street, New York, NY 10002
Sunday, January 13th
Barry Stone: Many Worlds, if Any, hosted by Klaus von Nichtssagend Gallery- In his fourth solo show at Klaus von Nichtssagend Gallery, Stone uses digitally manipulated images to suggest philosophical questions about the growing saturation of the digital image.
From 6-8pm @ 54 Ludlow Street, New York NY
This weekend is super-saturated with events, these are just a few fun ways to make a night of it. Personally I will be pairing the day event on Saturday with a good solid brunch. Hope to see you out there!
