Scene in New York

Monday is President’s Day. Celebrate the revolutionary spirit at the 2012 New Museum Generational Triennial, “The Ungovernables,” “an exhibition about the urgencies of a generation who came of age after the independence and revolutionary movements of the 1960s and 1970,” which opens to the public on Wednesday, and go to the artists’ roundtable about the exhibition on Thursday evening. Or ruminate on copyright laws and how they affect visual artists during Thursday evening’s panel discussion, “The Case for Appropriation” at the School of Visual Arts Theatre, and then head over to Salomon Contemporary for “American Responses: Reverence,” an exhibition of Ned Smyth’s work that’s part of a four-part series examining “American regionalism as a major influence on art of the early 1970s.”  On Friday, take in Charles Atlas’ “The Illusion of Democracy” the inaugural exhibition at Luhring Augustine’s new Bushwick space.

This week’s collection of openings, performances and happenings. (All addresses are in Manhattan unless otherwise noted.)
