Today, you absolutely should swing by Mexicue for a free Burrito Bullet. Burritos are usually enormous and make me want to take an afternoon nap. These not-so-mini minis are the perfect solution. Plus, Mexicue offers pretty much everything on their menu in this new size, so you don't have to compromise flavor. After sampling these babies you'll want to come back for seconds, which is good since basically every gallery in Chelsea is closed on Mondays. When you find yourself on 29th Street any other day of the week, start with Where We Begin (obviously) at Sean Kelly Gallery. Artist Peter Liversidge, inspired by a visit to New York, repurposed found objects and encourages you to interact with them. These pieces stand on their own, but if you want to know more about exactly what Liversidge is getting at, his proposals for the installation are on display in their original form: manually typewritten pages with errors and annotations intact. Will history be kind indeed?
Across the street at David Nolan artist Victoria Gitman shows history has been kind to handbags with On Display. Can you believe these gorgeous little vintage purses are paintings?! Seriously. Oil on board. How does she get those glass beads to look so real? It's like scrolling the Costume Institute Archives. Amazing, right?
