Writers/readers include Joel Craig, Matthew Zapruder, and Zach Plague. Happy Ending. 302 Broome St. 7:30. Free.


Saturday, February 2: Artist Barbara Bloom is showing more of her collections of made, found and organized objects at Printed Matter. Her work is also on view at ICP right now. You could have a Barbara Bloom day and hit them both! Printed Matter's opening is also celebrating her new book, The Collections of Barbara Bloom just out from Steidl/International Center for Photography. Highlights of this show include one of my favorites, Playboy Vol XLI No. 1 (1994), a braille edition of Playboy—to which Bloom added a fold-out photographic insert of Marilyn Monroe reading James Joyce’s Ulysses as well as a rare edition of Weimar a box of chocolates mimicking a book, which the artist designed for the city of Weimar in 1996. Printed Matter. 195 10th Avenue, 5-7pm. Free.
