Everybody’s a pioneer, and this week, we’re blazing trails over to their shows. Here are a few events from the L Magazine:

24/7 Through February 15th

Ongoing: Pioneers in Bushwick, Wyckoff Heights Medical

To hear the art scene tell it, the pioneers were the ones who colonized pre-coffee shop Bushwick in the early 2000s. So it’s refreshing to see the title of Daryl Ann-Saunders’ show of photo portraits, “Pioneers in Bushwick,” describing people who’ve lived in the neighborhood since 1975 or earlier.

The show will be taking place at the Wyckoff Heights Medical Center (open 24/7), perhaps in an attempt to put a good face on their jaw-dropping levels of corruption and negligence. Regardless of when you got here, that’s something everybody can share.
374 Stockholm Street, Bushwick

Wednesday, February 6th

Talk: Jaimie Warren, The Woahs of Female Tragedy, The Hole

If you haven’t yet seen Jaimie Warren’s brilliant Cindy Sherman-meets-tumblr show, this is your last chance to do so. DO IT. Warren and her friends stage colorfully sloppy renditions of found photoshopped art history paintings and photos from totallylookslike.com. Often in a goofy sneer or a Halloween wig, Warren descends on pop culture with the flamboyance of a Joan Rivers or a Roseanne Barr. You can hear her speak in person at the Hole on Wednesday.
8 PM, 312 Bowery
