Winter Antiques Show, Young Collectors Night this Thursday

It’s sort of like Antiques Roadshow, except with cocktails and everyone went to boarding school or some iteration of “Country Day.” The Young Collectors Night is this Thursday from 6-9pm where people will be hunting for more than just furniture (wink-wink, elbow-elbow).

Today is the opening of Print Studio, an interactive space where MoMA visitors are invited to explore the evolution of artistic practices relating to the medium of print. Through a series of hands-on art-making activities and workshops, as well as lectures and events taking place in MoMA’s Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building, participants are invited to reimagine the role of print in contemporary visual culture. A variety of artist and educator led programs involve exploration with digital and manual printing processes, engagement with a selection of recycled materials, and consideration of subjects such as the history of publication and knowledge production related to the print medium.

Print Studio is organized in conjunction with the exhibition Print/Out (February 19–May 14, 2012)

Recess and Why Patterns, this Friday at 8pm

Jonah Bokaer, Daniel Arsham, and Snarkitecture are presenting new works at the Carnival Studio Theater in the Ziff Ballet Opera House Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County at 1300 Biscayne Boulevard. Jonah Bokaer, hailed by The New York Times as “contemporary dance’s renaissance man,” offers a surprising, innovative program combining dance, architecture, and visual art. The site-specific works are designed by acclaimed visual artist and Miami native Daniel Arsham and his architectural design firm, Snarkitecture, which investigates structure and materials within a space and how they are manipulated to serve new and imaginative goals. He has a show at OHWOW in LA right now, which you should also check out here.
