Already the site of New York’s emerging and experimental art scene, Manhattan’s Lower East Side and its surrounding neighborhoods the fun and discovery is multiplied in the summer when the galleries present oddball and left-field works including live plants, obsolete refrigerators, and copper heating circuits.

Here artnet News compiled some of the most interesting and unusual shows that you can’t miss.

5. “Brent Birnbaum: Voyer Voyager Forager Forester” at Denny Gallery (July 13—August 26, 2016)
In line with the artist’s practice of repurposing obsolete objects into works of art, the gallery will show over 40 used, wood-paneled mini refrigerators stacked in different heights.

The artist installed micro-worlds inside each fridge, and visitors are invited to open and explore the interiors, making them assume the role of the voyeur. It’s our ’70s basement dream come true.
