7 Things to Do in New York’s Art World Before December 1

Isaac Julien's epic nine-screen work, Ten Thousand Waves (2010) which was recently acquired by the museum, will be installed for the first time in its new home. You can find the piece, which has previously appeared in the 2010 Sydney Biennale, the Hayward Gallery in London, the Brandhorst Museum in Munich and the Bass Museum of Art in Miami Beach, in the second-floor atrium. —Zoë Lescaze
MoMA, 11 West 53rd Street, New York, 10:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m.
Working Girls (1986) is about just what the title implies. My goodness, it's something avant garde taking place in Williamsburg! What will the tech bros say ("Why I never," readjusting his Google Glass monocle, etc.)? —Dan Duray
Spectacle Theater, 124 South 3rd Street, Brooklyn, 10 p.m., $5
Here's a chance to scope out Richard Van Buren's not-often-seen work from the 1970s. One piece "consists of eight brightly colored elements cast from Mylar sheets buried in a snowbank," which sounds great to me. And there's more: the estimable poet and critic Carter Ratcliff has penned a catalogue essay. (Pictured is a more recent work, 2011's Batya Red.) —Andrew Russeth
Garth Greenan Gallery, 529 West 20th Street, 10th Floor, New York, 10 a.m.–6 p.m.
"In Orly, four couples inhabit the liminal space of the titular Parisian airport’s departure hall: a man and a woman who just met; a mother and her teenage son on their way to a funeral; a young couple embarking on their first big trip; a woman who reads a letter from the man she has recently left." Sounds good right? Distance camera shots and what not. Might cleanse the palate after your real Thanksgiving airport woes. —D.D.
Theater 2 (The Roy and Niuta Titus Theater 2), 11 West 53rd Street, 4 p.m., $12

For The Record, a project commemorating those lost during the AIDS crisis and "the erasure of personal and collective memories from the historical record through this loss," is currently on view in Printed Matter's windows. Fierce Pussy, a collective of queer women artists, has been addressing these issues since the early '90s, and recently presented this project's initial iteration at White Columns, for the 2010 exhibition "Act Up New York: Activism, Art and the AIDS Crisis, 1987-1993." —Z.L.

Holiday: Thanksgiving
Pretty much every gallery and museum will be closed today to mark this day of thanks. Many are actually closing up for a few days, so it’s probably best to give your local art gallery a ring before paying an unexpected visit. Note that, if you are reading this before Thanksgiving, Shake Shack is currently offering its great pumpkin pie custard on Wednesdays, so swing by and stock up for the holiday. —A.R.
