It’s time once again to blast Modest Mouse’s “Florida,” pack your whites and jet south for Miami Art Week. This year, the ever-growing phalanx of fairs will include newbs like Zones and Auto Body, where some of downtown’s finest provocateurs will do their thing. The avalanche of art can be overwhelming, but with plenty of NYC galleries in the mix (Bushwick’s Signal and the LES’s Home Alone 2 are just a couple that are doing boozy hotel pop-ups), there’s no need to leave your comfort zone. We’ve rounded up all the LES, East Village, and North Brooklyn galleries who’ll be at the fairs, and (at the bottom of the page) at various pop-ups, performances and parties.
