Scene in New York

David LaChapelle's "Lovers"

Today is Marti Gras. In the spirit of over-indulgence, on Thursday, attend the opening of “The Nudist Museum Gift Shop” at DODGE Gallery, where, in addition to creating a series of paintings of nude design objects found on e-bay and in second-hand stores, artist Ellen Harvey has modified “every nude postcard currently on offer in the art museums of New York City… to show only the human bodies depicted therein.” Then head over to Fred Torres Collaborations to see David LaChappelle’s Baroque-inspired still lifes, “Earth Laughs in Flowers” which include not just fruit, flowers and skulls, but also upended cell phones, cigarette butts, balloons, Barbies, and a Starbuck’s iced coffee cup. On Friday, repent for the overindulgence, and view “On the Outer Edge,” PS3* Pedro Sanchez3’s “new video work in a full-scale home designed for a life of deliberate deprivation” at Abrons Art Center. On Saturday, see Joe Heaps Nelson’s “This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things” at Fuse Gallery and then head over to Ars Nova Theater to prepare for the next evening’s Oscars with “You Like Me: An Evening of Classic Acceptance Speeches.”

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