What’s Up This Weekend

Here are some of the highlights from the calendar for this weekend. Remember: More info on these—and the full calendar—is here.

••• Opening reception at Jack Hanley Gallery for Folke Köbberling and Martin Kaltwasser’s installation, “Postautomobilzeitalter”—for which the artists turned a Saab 900 into two functioning bicycles. (Friday)

••• A City Winery “rent jam” to benefit the Jazz Gallery. (Friday)

••• Honeysuckle Rose, a Willie Nelson/Dyan Cannon/Amy Irving vehicle from 1980, screens Friday at 92YTribeca. That’s the film that “On the Road Again” is from. Now you have “On the Road Again” stuck in your head, don’t you?

••• Christmas tree and electronics recycling at Bowling Green, sponsored by the Lower East Side Ecology Center. (Saturday)

••• The Iron Mule Short Comedy Film Festival at 92YTribeca (Saturday)

••• Former Men at Work lead singer Colin Hay—whose solo stuff is quite good—plays City Winery on Saturday. Maybe he’ll do “On the Road Again.”

••• Of course, there’s a bunch of interesting ongoing stuff, too—such as Timothy Paul Myers’s “The Ontario Ration” at Pelavin Gallery. Below, “Trade,” from 2011. Here’s the description: “340 mixed media pieces (found American trading cards, hand addressed postcards, etchings, printed Bothers Grimms publication, National Geographic maps (all circa 1900s-1930s); covered with graphite and White-Out drawings; framed in handcrafted maple and encased in a plexiglass display case. Each drawing: 3 x 1.75 inches. Display case: 57.5 x 42 inches.”
