(Curator Nicholas Cueva with Daniel Dennett's "Haptic Whittles" at Underdonk) At first Daniel Dennett wasn’t sure showing his whittles at Underdonk was a good idea.

Gorgeous paintings in Bushwick, performances in Downtown Brooklyn, "lost" photographs of young Truman Capote—and yes, the Olympics. Because that's art too. Don't miss out on all the good stuff because your face is stuck to your air conditioner with one eye on The Get Down.  UNDERDONK GALLERY: WOOGIE — OSAMU KOBAYASHI Kobayashi's paintings have a...
