Sure, it was cool to see Tilda Swinton sleeping in a glass box, but what if the artist was present for some pillow talk?
That’s exactly what’s happening at a new show at Bosi Contemporary, “Come to Bed!”, which uses three queen-sized beds to focus on the different types of communication that take place under the covers. “You can sleep, you can eat in your bed, you can have sexual experiences,” said the show’s curator, Roya Sachs. “At each age, you experience it differently, which is nice because they’re all of different ages, the artists, so they have different relationships with the bed.”

See below for our recommendations of ongoing shows and openings happening this week. More →
