For the calendar:

  • See group exhibitions at Greene Naftali, Tanya Bonakdar , [NYT reviews] and D’Amelio Terras Galleries [NYT review] in NYC.
  • Now that my gallery talk is past, it’s safe to attend PS1’s WarmUp series. Listen to it live online, in case long lines and borderline headcase non-hipsters aren’t your thing.
  • See the exhibition, Trash to Treasure: The Production Design of Vince Peranio at the Creative Alliance in Baltimore. Peranio has worked with John Waters since Pink Flamingos, and is currently PD on HBO‘s series, The Wire, which I hear is popular with the kids these days. Through Aug. 9.
  • See the Freer & Sackler Galleries‘ Made in Hong Kong Film Festival, which includes recent works by director Ann Hui. On Aug 15 and 17, they’re showing Wong Kar-Wai‘s second film, the 1991Days of Being Wild. The film is Wong’s first collaboration with cinematographer Christopher Doyle, and represents and rather ambitiously takes its title from the HK release of Rebel Without A Cause.
