With the fast approach of The Armory Show, VOLTA, Scope, and Fountain art fairs, many people would assume that there might be a shortage of things to explore in the city this weekend. Au contraire, mon frere. Although art fair season is upon us, it is still incredibly important to support our local artistic brethren. Check out what’s going on this week!

In his fifth solo show in New York, artist Dainel Rozin dissects the optical and psychological cues that are inherent to building an image in ones mind. He uses geometry and repetition to tap into the most rudimentary visual part of the brain, while still addressing complex humanistic ideas. This display is sure to play with your senses.
Opening Reception 6-8:30pm @ bitforms Gallery, 529 W 20th Street, 2nd Floor
Sunday, March 3rd
In this solo exhibition, Paul D’Agostino will tell a narrative through his collection of works ranging in media, including drawings, paintings, sculpture, and collages. The pieces in themselves embody characters, settings and dialogue articulated through his poetry. Judging from the many different forms of media he expresses this story through, this show seems like it will be immersive and interactive.
Opening Reception 6-8pm @ Pocket Utopia, 191 Henry Street, New York NY
