This week, the emerging art world owns its quirkiness. Cleopatra’s has a show about working out; Sara Cwynar builds a kitsch encyclopedia; and Ann Hirsch performs a two-person act set in a chat room.

Also, the New Museum prepares for its major Chris Burden exhibition (get in line now) and the New Yorker sells tickets for the New Yorker Festival this weekend (don’t get too excited). And through the end of next week, the New York Film Festival continues screening independent and critical films. We don’t know anything about film, so luckily, AFC’s resident filmmaker Rhett Jones made us a round-up. All that and more, after the jump!

On Friday night, something’s going down at the Redhook galleries, but we’re not sure what. And tomorrow, we hope Cleopatra’s doubles its benefit goals for artist, curator, and Dependent Fair founder Rose Marcus, to help her pay for major surgery–and so do many talented artists who’ve contributed to her benefit auction. All that, and more, after the jump!

For their portion of the Shanghai Biennale, Cleopatra’s has teamed up with artist Chris Rice in commissioning over 50 mostly-emerging Brooklyn artists to make karaoke videos. The series , CKTV, is now on view at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. If that sounds like the kind of fun, toss-off premise you find in summer shows, it is fun– but by no means arbitrary.
