Foursquare Tips

  • On the Mike Kelley retrospective: Whether you like or dislike him, as you might by turns, he felt as indispensable as a compass in the darker woods of contemporary experience. Oct. 13-Feb. 2
  • P.S.1 holds an enormous dance party in their courtyard every Saturday this summer. Arrive around 7 to skip the heat and see the best bands and DJs perform.
  • Get in free with a MoMA admission ticket thats less than 30 days old.
  • Can you find the video work by 1998 HUGO BOSS PRIZE nominee Pipilotti Rist hiding in one of the bathrooms?
  • Love the space... Find the tiny video embedded in their floor.
  • Saw the Pool art installation.
  • Find a diverse range of world-class DJs and musicians at Warm Up, the popular daytime wingding in MoMA PS1s concrete-walled school yard. Pro tip: Avoid the long lines by snagging advance tickets.
  • Youll find artwork up and down each staircase and behind every door. Crucial to think of this not as a museum, but an exhibition space.
  • Must do: James Turrell "Meeting" room 3rd floor. Opens at 3pm depending on weather but sometimes earlier. Lay on the floor for the best view. Daydream away!
  • Originally built in 1893 as the First Ward School, it could hold up to 1,000 students in its more than 30 rooms. Even after being renamed, closed and then reopened, the public-school theme remains.
  • just the building is amazing!
  • This is some of the most experimental artwork in the world. So when we need a serious shot in the arm of avant-garde, this is our go-to spot. Theres always something provocative on display.
  • Go under the swimming pool
  • You know you love those summertime parties, hipsters or not. Saw Michael Pollan speak there too...
  • Warm Up to Cool Down: buy your tickets ahead of time online to skip the long lines and have enough time to enjoy the artwork before the music.
  • This is the spot to check out large scale experimental art. The place is an old public school that was converted to an exhibit space for contemporary art.
  • no chicks no tips
  • Cecily Brown created Untitled for the 1997 group exhibition Vertical Paintings. Don't miss out on this permanent exhibit.
  • Check out the permanent collection of Richard Artschwager: blips.
  • The Warm Up party every Saturday during the summer is dance party heaven, especially when you've got DJs like Simian Mobile Disco behind the decks!
