Two openings not to miss: #TheSocialGraph at Outpost, Andrew Ohanesian at Famous Accountants
On Friday, come celebrate the opening of #TheSocialGraph, an exhibition curated by our very own editor Hrag Vartanian. The show, held at Outpost (off the Halsey stop on the L), analyzes the burgeoning genre of social media art, exploring artists who use social media and projects that take place entirely within social media. The opening party will kick off at 6pm. Find out more here, and RSVP on Facebook!
The same night as #TheSocialGraph there’s another opening down the street at the fantastic Famous Accountants, which is an emerging gallery based in Bushwick. Multimedia installation artist Andrew Ohanesian , whose recent work “Mandi’s” (2010) had the whole neighborhood abuzz, is opening a new solo exhibition. At left, see a map with directions from Outpost to Famous Accountants, so come by on Friday and make it a double header.

A trip through Bushwick’s studios and art spaces: Beta Spaces
Don’t really get what Bushwick is all about? Don’t worry, on Sunday, all of Bushwick’s emerging art scene will be out in force for the neighborhood-defining Beta Spaces. Presented by Arts in Bushwick, part studio crawl, part gallery block party, Beta Spaces sees Bushwick warehouses throw open their doors for visitors. Composed of apartment shows and galleries alike, participating institutions include English Kills gallery, Norte Maar, Lumenhouse, and Brooklyn Fireproof East . Be sure to pick up a map at a local bar or coffee shop (you’ll need it) and take part. Hyperallergic is a media sponsor of Beta Spaces this year, because we’re all part of the neighborhood.
