Hang out

When you stop by the Brooklyn Academy of Music tonight for the opening of the Next Wave Art exhibit, look up! An installation of tables, chairs, and teacups by Brooklyn artist Ioanna Pantazopoulou will float above your head like a chandelier, as part of the “Towards a New Archaeology” exhibit. Grab a free drink and explore work by her and six other artists, in this space, BAM Harvey, and BAM Fisher.

7:30 pm at BAM Peter Jay Sharp Building [30 Lafayette Ave. at Ashland Place in Fort Greene, (718) 636–4100], www.bam.org. Free.
