7 Things to Do in New York’s Art World Before July 30


Screening: William E. Jones’s Tearoom at Julius’s
The monthlong “Dirty Looks: On Location” film program presents William E. Jones’s Tearoom, which is assembled from film shot by police in Mansfield, Ohio, as they investigated public acts of gay sex in the early 1960s. What better place to watch this than at one of New York’s most storied gay bars? —Andrew Russeth
Julius’s, 159 West 10th Street, New York, 4 p.m.–4 a.m.


Screening: Derek Jarman, Blue, curated by David Everitt Howe, at the Judson Memorial Church
Solely a wide projection of the color blue, with voiceover by John Quentin, Tilda Swinton, Nigel Terry and Jarman himself, the 1992 film is a comment on not just the artist’s own struggle with AIDS but also the effect the disease had on the gay community. A stirring piece in a stirring venue, brought to you by “Dirty Looks.” —Dan Duray
Judson Memorial Church, 55 Washington Square South, New York, 8 p.m.


Opening: “31 Women in Art Photography” at Hasted Kraeutler

Hasted Kraeutler, 537 West 24 Street, New York, 6–8 p.m.


Screening: The 400 Blows and Public School Exercises and Recreation at the Museum of Modern Art
What’s better than a screening of François Truffaut’s 1959 classic The 400 Blows? A screening of François Truffaut’s 1959 classic The 400 Blows paired with a 1911 film produced by the Edison Company that documents a day at P.S. 41 in the Bronx, presented as part of MoMA’s “Unaccompanied Minors: Views of Youth in Films from the Collection” series. There will be another screening Aug.  1 at 8 p.m. —A.R.
The Museum of Modern Art, 11 West 53rd Street, New York, 5 p.m.

Benefit: The Big Bang: The 19th Annual Watermill Center Summer Benefit
The Watermill Center hosts its summer fête with art installations, Bacardi cocktails, dinner, dancing, a silent auction and a live auction auction hosted by auctioneer and Phillips de Pury chairman Simon de Pury. Marina Abramovic, Justin Lowe and Jonah Freeman, James Franco, Terry Richardson, E.V. Day and Kembra Pfahler are some of the many artists whose artworks will be up for auction, and some of whom will probably be spotted dancing under the tent. Guests should come dressed inspired by Pop. And for those who want in on the action, but would rather not have to endure the traffic on the LIE, you can still bid on items in the benefit auction at Paddle8, which is already underway. —Rozalia Jovanovic
The Watermill Center, 39 Watermill Towd Road, Water Mill, N.Y., 6 p.m.

Art Fair: NADA Hudson (also Sunday, July 29)
The second edition of NADA Hudson returns this weekend to the tony enclave of Hudson, N.Y., where Marina Abramovic’s new center is being built and where artists go to escape the city heat. But don’t call NADA Hudson an art fair, even though we just did. It’s an exhibition showcasing 48 artist projects by members and affiliates of the New Art Dealers Alliance—a site-specific project that builds on the character of the historic Basilica Hudson, with each gallery presenting work in the main hall, in addition to even more projects outdoors and a video program curated by Grela Orihuela of Wet Heat Projects, which makes documentaries on contemporary art. Some of the participating galleries conjuring these projects are Zach Feuer, Feature Inc., Joe Sheftel, Marlborough Chelsea, Envoy Enterprises and even a few from abroad, like Braverman of Tel Aviv, Israel, and Art Omi of Ghent, Belgium.— R.J.
Basilica Hudson, 110 South Front Street, Hudson, New York, 11 a.m.-7 p.m.

Fair: The Third Annual Zine and Self-Published Photo Book Fair (also Sunday, July 29)
The fair returns to the Camera Club of New York and features the likes of Printed Matter, David Brandon Greeting, Mossless Magazine and a whole lot more. The event is organized by Lindsey Castillo, Rebecca O’Keefe and Grant Willing. —Michael H. Miller
Camera Club of New York, 336 West 37th Street, Suite 206, New York, 12–6 p.m.
