Welcome to Remezcla’s weekly guide to Latin art openings in your city each week. Mingle with art admirers, collectors and casual passersby to check out these new works. And don’t forget to grab a free glass of wine…or three.

Lee Quiñones Pop-Up Show

Nuyorican graffiti veteran Lee Quiñones will be having a show of early drawings alongside newer work at Nicole Klagsburn gallery. Quiñones developed his art style in the 1970s when New York’s street art scene was burgeoning and economic and social issues in the city were as dire as ever. You can imagine that the artwork coming out of this time period was aggressive, radical, and even frantic. The show aims to place Quiñones’ early drawings side by side with more recent work where he uses more elements of collage. You can view the show at 291 Grand St. until June 7th.

Kiddie Riders

This exhibition presents three videos by Dominican artist Alina Landry Rancier. The videos ‘Ice Cream’, ‘Lollipop’ and ‘Hotdog’ deal with the intersection of childhood innocence and sensual desire. In addition to the videos, the space will be interactive containing props, a photo booth and kiddie rides! Los Perros Locos will be serving hot dogs and Gramwich will provide the ice cream sandwiches. It’s a one night only show this Thursday, May 7th, so don’t miss this unique event put on by Dipsters and FAME.

Carlos Quintana Recent Works

Cuban and Cuban-based artist Carlos Quintana is showing new work at a fancy place called the National Arts Club. Quintana interacts with his paintings in what one might call “non-traditional” methods such as mixing spit and urine with the paint on the canvas. He also uses a lot of Eastern symbolism along with Cuban imagery. You can visit the gallery between 10am and 5pm Monday through Friday until May 30th.
