Last night, The Bruce High Quality Foundation went all Willy Wonka by opening the doors to their rarely seen headquarters. The occasion was “NOT FOR PROFIT,” a benefit and celebratory evening of live music and performances by Dev Hynes, Ana Fabrega, FAKE INJURY PARTY, Edan, Blazer Sound System and Max McFerren. Attendees drank from an open Vodka Bar provided by Belvedere Vodka, and bought art right off the walls to help raise funds for the BHQFU.

The fall art season kicked off in beautiful form on Sunday as the downtown set flocked to Team Gallery in SOHO for the opening of Ryan McGinley’s new show, YEARBOOK. Christos Katsiaouni sweated it out inside the packed gallery for all the smiles and pretty pictures.
All week we’ll be previewing cultural highlights from the upcoming fall season. Today we start with 34 can’t miss art exhibitions opening in September in New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Paris.
From New York to Los Angeles and up to San Francisco, there’s a lot of art to see, and plenty of time to see it. It’s a long weekend!

Last night, our intrepid photographer Christos Katsiaouni headed down to No Romance Galleries in TriBeCa to check out the opening of “Never Too Young,” a group show featuring works by Harry Mcnally, Mike Krim, Osvaldo Chance Jimenez and PJ Monte. Here is the scene that he encountered.
This past Wednesday, art & graffiti legends packed the house for the opening of Cruel Summer curated by Roger Gastman at Jonathan Levine Gallery. Christos Katsiaouni was there for the flicks.
Roger Gastman & co. take over both of Jonathan Levine’s gallery spaces for “Cruel Summer.” Be there.
Gone are the days of cramming into a sweat-filled box to catch a glimpse of some pictures on the wall, maybe. This is the new VICE; where space is now plentiful, yet the people are the same. Catch this great exhibition at Pioneer Works in Red Hook through August 10th.

Starting tonight (7/30) with Nick Sethi’s show on Canal Street and finishing out in Brooklyn on Friday for Kinfolk 94’s inaugural summer group show (REVOK, above), there’s enough going on to give you FOMO satisfaction before taking peace in Summer reclusion on Saturday.
A bunch of nice things happening
Tis the season of group shows.
Torrential rains and flash floods couldn’t keep the crowds away from Cara Stricker’s pop-up show at The Hole last week.
