Classical Music, A Museum Party and Other Weekend Ideas

Friday, July 13, 2018

Sometimes it can be hard to figure out what to do over the weekend. In New York and the Hamptons, there are just too many options. Fortunately, AVENUE’s editors have put their collective heads together and come up with a few suggestions, ranging from an avant-garde concert in Brooklyn to a festive gala out East. What unites them all is that they’re worth your time.

Wojnarowicz at the Whitney

In the past few years, interest in the work of late New York artist David Wojnarowicz has skyrocketed. Now, the Whitney has opened “David Wojnarowicz: History Keeps Me Awake at Night,” a stunning retrospective of the artist’s work.

Vive la révolution! 229 years ago this Saturday, revolutionaries stormed the Bastille prison in Paris, one of the most consequential moments in world history. And now it’s a fun holiday! Keep your eyes on Avenue’s pages for our full run-down of ways to celebrate the French holiday.

Party at the Parrish

The Parrish Art Museum’s always fun Midsummer Party is on Saturday. The benefit, which honors trustee Chad Leat and artist Keith Sonnier, promises to attract a who’s who of Hamptons society.  Just don’t forget your dancing shoes…it’s going to go late.
