1. MK Guth: Be Part of It! at Cristin Tierney Gallery, New York

MK Guth will be in residence at Cristin Tierney Gallery for the first two weeks of her new exhibition, Be Part of It! (through August 12). It will be the artist’s latest hair-braiding performance, in which visitors are invited to weave silver satin ribbons inscribed with their names into the artist’s hair. Past works have been staged at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, the Whitney Biennial in New York, and Cosmopolitan’s P3 Studio in Las Vegas, where Guth’s braids each ended up more than 300 feet long, weighing hundreds of pounds. This time around, Guth will cut the braids on Saturday, July 23, and spend the second week of the residency (July 25–29) sewing them into sculptures.
