Wednesday April 2nd: Dave Eggers, of McSweeneys and novels with long titles fame, has organized a show at Apex Art which opens today. Says Eggers in the press release: "This show will explore a very small and specific type of artmaking exemplified by contemporary people like David Shrigley, Raymond Pettibon, Nedko Solakov, and Tucker Nichols. This kind of art, which we refuse to name, is somewhat crude, usually irreverent, and always funny. It exists somewhere between one-panel cartoons and text-based art." Apex Art. 291 Church St. 6-8pm. Free.

Thursday April 3rd: Ryan Mcginley's show I Know Where the Summer Goes opens at Team. 83 Grand St. 6-8pm. Free.
