TUESDAY, JULY 3
Opening: “Home Again, Again,” at the Journal Gallery
Judging by the eight artists presenting work here, this summer group show seems likely to offer a pretty good prècis of some of the most exciting things happening among youngish artists right now in New York. Here’s the full list: Darren Bader, Chris Martin, Sam Moyer, Davina Semo, Ryan Sullivan, Raphael Taylor, Jeffrey Tranchell and Ned Vena. It’s worth the trip just to see what Mr. Bader pulls out of his hat. He recently presented a self-explanatory work in Norway called Person sitting in passenger seat of a car. —Andrew Russeth
The Journal Gallery, 168 North 1st Street, Brooklyn, 6–9 p.m.
Screening: Santiago Sierra, “NO, Global Tour,” Team Gallery
Santiago Sierra made a giant sculpture reading “No,” sent it around the world and filmed it. “Crossing most of Western Europe,” reads the press release, “the Eastern United States and touching down briefly in Japan, the six-foot-tall, fourteen-foot wide negation is the protagonist of Sierra’s road movie.” Feels approriate for a week when people don’t want to do anything and often travel. —Dan Duray

Opening: “B-Out” at Andrew Edlin Gallery
Scott Hug organized this blowout of a group show, which features more than 100 artists. It’s a pretty stellar lineup, including everyone from Joshua Abelow, Gina Beavers and A.K. Burns, at one end of the alphabet, to Hunter Reynolds, David Wojnarowicz and Martin Wong, at the other. And there are plenty of superb, exciting people in between. —A.R.

Performance: Eve Essex, Juan Antonio Olivares, “The End, Light Blue,” Shoot the Lobster
Eve Essex and Juan Antonio Olivares worked with veteran Hollywood foley artist Marko Costanzo to choreograph realistic sounds from everyday life. With the help of 10 performers, according to the press release, “everyday sounds are meticulously recreated by a small ensemble of instrumentalists; physical actions are dramatically and rhythmically amplified.” Sounds like eerie fun! —D.D.
