The beauty of living in New York is you can wander around the city and get culture for free. Tonight (because we like to think weekends start on Thursdays) West London graffiti artist Maximillian Wiedemann takes on the rich and famous and the hype that surrounds them in his Tribeca show, Vanity Unfair, at the Zinc Building. Expect a smattering of expats, ripped jeans and lots of lumberjack plaid.
On Saturday, Chelsea is staying in the art game with a new bookstore, Artbook at X, that is opening with a splashy book signing by Kembra Pfhaler & The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black. Interesting title and even more interesting makeup. Pfhaler’s new book Beautalism is published by downtown art stalwart Deitch Projects.
