The art world is going strong this summer, so if you’d like to church it up after all that beer drinking and barbecuing, here’s what’s happening this weekend.

Thursday 8/1

We’re in This Together. The latest iteration of the Brave New Art World‘s monthly gallery crawl, featuring a critical talk from artist and educator Carron Little with architect Jimenez Lai called “Public Art: Permanent or Temporary?”

Friday 8/2

ARGUS: Organic Visual Archive at Johalla Projects. A fluid, monthlong project in which “photographers, image makers, and artists” are invited to display works that are “photographic, as defined by the participant,” creating an exhibition in a continual state of flux.

Parallels // Part 2 at the Mission. An investigation of the relationship between experience and perception featuring the work of ACRE residents Joshua Albers and Yhelena Hall.

Saturday 8/3

Swimming With a Kite at the Franklin. A one-night-only interactive installation from Silvia Malagrino, Joshua Albers, and Jesus Duran. The work was inspired, in part, by mysterious notes scrawled by an anonymous reader in a book by Carl Jung.

The Economics of Art 2013 at Vertical. An examination of the value of art, specifically as it relates to methods of reproduction.

Sunday 8/4

Avante Couture Fashion Show at Bridgeport Art Center. A swank party and fashion show to feature the talents of two emerging local designers, Stephane St. Jaymes and Eugene St. Firming.
