Artist collective MTAA launch Over the Opening tonight, a new project in which the group showcases the work of an artist every second Friday of the month in their Williamsburg studio. Media artist and MTAA member Michael Sarff's starts things off by presenting three video loops from the Again Transporter series, exploring the nature of servomechanisms and mechanized transportation. The artist will also show Some Group Assemble Required (SGAR), a socially activated sculpture.

A number of Williamsburg galleries remain open past usual closing hours tonight for Williamsburg Every Second, a monthly event allowing strollers to look at art after-hours. A recommended stop tonight is The Front Room on Roebling, where Ethan Crenson will be spinning 78 rpm records from his collection of atomic bomb songs and Cold War classics tonight, while Mark Stilwell's cityscape installation looms in the background.
