Scott Ogden will guide visitors through his “Twisted” show at Ricco Maresca, Faith Ringgold will be signing books at ACA Galleries, Claire Oliver will host an opening reception for “The Devil Can Cite Scripture” (with works by Judith Schaechter and Bernardi Roig), Porter/Contemporary lets visitors get in the picture for “A Polaroid Moment Within a Portrait Apart” with Jeff Ballinger, Horton Gallery will screen Miroslav Tichý: Tarzan Retired, and Mark Wagner will cut up dollar bills and give the pieces away at Pavel Zoubok. You can also play Ping-Pong at Nicholas Robinson, get shaved ice at Jenkins Johnson, and check out concerts by Autodrone at Monya Rowe, Genevieve White at Freight + Volume, and an acoustic show at RARE from a mystery group, among myriad other activities.
