Friday, July 13th:
Opening: Slag Contemporary, Claudia Chaseling: Infiltration
While recent solo shows at Slag have featured a lot of abstract figures, this show of works by Claudia Chaseling will feature abstracted plants and landscapes. Also, according to the press release, radioactive poisoning factors into this somehow.
56 Bogart St., 6-9pm
Opening: Janet Kurnatowski, Summer Snacks
For this savory group exhibition, curatorial wiz Janet Kurnatowski has gathered works on paper by about 20 artists from her fathomless roster.
205 Norman Ave., 7-9pm
(Saturday and Sunday after the jump.)
Saturday, July 14th:
Opening: Littlefield, One Hundred Dollars: An Art Exhibit
Artists Andrew Smenos and Sergio Barrale have asked 98 other artists to help them make one hundred original artworks using dollar bills as canvases, all to be sold for $100 each. Money made and remade, then maybe multiplied.
622 Degraw St., 6-9pm
Opening: Parallel Art Space, Pressing Matter
An exhibition probing the manual processes behind works by Judith Braun, Antonia Perez and Hilda Shen.
1717 Troutman St., 6-9pm
Reading: Regina Rex, Corina Copp, Eugene Ostashevsky, Matvei Yankelevich, Steven Zultanski
Given that the current exhibit at the gallery pertains to an epistolary exchange between Victor Shklovsky, a Russian poet, and his lover, Alya, it is perhaps fitting that a reading of some sort should be held in the space while the works—by Nancy Haynes, EJ Hauser and Sarah Peters—are still on display.
1717 Troutman St., 6-8pm
Sunday, July 15th:
Musical performance: Studio 10, An Unnamed Ensemble, COSO, Thee Ultimate Veg
Three different takes on noise music by three different bands: a seven-person ensemble specializing in ‘hitting and blowing'; a trio from Buenos Aires whose short-lived live sets are conceived as something like happenings; and an improvisational duo that seems to make sounds out of everything including the kitchen sink.
56 Bogart St., 7:30-10pm
