What’s Going On Friday?
Written by Bwog Staff
It’s a big city out there. This week, Bwog begins a new series of artsy picks to help you navigate the world below Morningside.
Neither New nor Correct: Mark Bradford
Mark Bradford, recipient of the Bucksbaum Award for truly exceptional work at the 2006 Biennial, now has his own exhibition at the Whitney involving paper collages made from the mountains of advertisements plastered around his neighborhood in Southern California. The end result looks something like a topographical street map on acid.
(Editor’s note: Sunday’s also your last chance to check out that one and only Jimi Hendrix water color in the Summer of Love exhibition. BYOLSD.)
Whitney Museum of American Art, 945 Madison Ave., (212) 570-3676, 1 p.m. – 9 p.m. $15 (free with student ID with current sticker. Pay as you wish from 6-9 p.m. on Fridays).
One Step Beyond Party at American Museum of Natural History: DJs and Milky Ways
Hosted by the Columbia Alumni Association and the American Museum of Natural History. Flavorpill presents this Friday night party that mixes outer space with techno and booze. A freaky combination with something for everyone.
American Museum of Natural History, West 81st entrance, 9 p.m. $20 (includes future admission to museum).
The Walkmen + The Subjects
Freshmen favorites the Walkmen–featuring, notably, one Columbia College alum–bring their yowling indie-rock to the brand spankin’ new Musical Hall of Williamsburg. Even if their recent records don’t compare to Everyone Who Pretended to Like Me Is Gone or Bows + Arrows, their live show is still loud as shit.
Music Hall of Williamsburg, 66 North Sixth Street, Brooklyn, $20. 8 p.m.
Williamsburg Every Second: Art After Hours
Less than a week after art paraded through Manhattan, you can head over to that other borough and enjoy some after-hours art viewing in more than 35 galleries. Sure, some will suck, but drink specials help.
Begins at Spike Hill, 184 Bedford Ave., Brooklyn, (718) 218-9737. Visit www.williamsburggalleryassociation.com for a list/ map of other participating galleries. 7-11 p.m. Free.
