Join Hyperallergic & Art Southampton for a Summer Hamptons Getaway

Well before Julian Schnabel and Eric Fischl made their indelible mark there, the East End of Long Island has loomed large in 20th century American art history. Jackson Pollock decamped from the city to East Hampton when he married Lee Krasner in 1945, establishing a modest home and studio with a loan from Peggy Guggenheim. And Cocaine Cowboys, Uli Lommel’s campy 1979 whodunnit, starred Andy Warhol at his Montauk estate.

Today, Art Southampton, which is in its second year, brings many major national and international galleries to the South Fork, and has in its own right become one of New York’s most important summer art fairs.

Join Hyperallergic & Art Southampton on Saturday, July 27th for an intimate day trip to the Hamptons. We’ll visit the significant private collection at the home of Theodore & Ruth Baum, tour the Art Southampton Fair, and enjoy lunch in the cafe and cocktails in the Art Southampton VIP Lounge with an after-party and dinner at the Southampton Social Club to follow.

Retreat to a Hidden Winter Cabin in Times Square with The Drums, Kimsin Kreft, and a Human-Taxidermy Duo

As the temperatures in New York rise into the summer heights, there is a place in Times Square that’s always frozen. The Aspen Social Club on 47th Street with its tree trunks sprouting in the walls, decorative deer antlers, and icy-toned space where a waterfall replicates a Rocky Mountain slope acts as a year-round Aspen cabin. It’s this hidden winter oasis that will host the next Times Square After Hours program on Wednesday, June 12, from 9:30–11:30pm.
