Here’s a roundup of the latest sales, interior-design events, and industry affairs in New York this week.

MAD Gallery: Pop-Up Art Exhibition

MAD Gallery is a pop-up-style art exhibition that showcases both emerging talent and established artists from all over the world, creating an art-buying experience that’s more fun and less buttoned-up. On April 20 and 21, they will host their latest pop-up art exhibition at their Chelsea studio (526 W. 26th, tenth fl., studio 1001) including paintings, collages, and mixed-media work from 12 artists. ​Admission is free. RSVP online.

​Explore the Lower East Side’s Cultural District

On April 22, the Municipal Art Society of New York is leading a walking tour called “The FABulous Arts of East Fourth Street.” One of only a very few official cultural districts in NYC, the East 4th Street block between Bowery and Second Avenue, FABnyc, is a cultural hub with 14 arts groups, ten cultural facilities, and 20 performance and rehearsal venues that, together, strengthen the community. The guide will lead visitors in an exploration of the street and discuss the legendary institutions that can be found there. Admission is $30, and $20 for MAS members. Register online.

Art Baby Girl at Tictail Market

Tictail Market is the brick-and-mortar home of Tictail, an online marketplace for emerging brands. On April 19, Tictail will celebrate Grace Miceli’s (a.k.a Art Baby Girl) new mural as part of its artist series. In the past two years, Tictail has worked with Timothy Goodman, Miranda July, and Shawna X to create murals that are displayed on the storefront at 90 Orchard Street. Miceli’s mural integrates nostalgic objects to explore evolving identities. Guests will meet the artist, shop, and write personal notes on postcards to be mailed to other, random attendees. Drinks will be served. Attendance is free. RSVP online.
