Looking for art and culture things to do in New York City this weekend? Here’s a short list. Read on to find a novella reading and following conversation, two concerts, talks on women in New York City’s fashion industry, and a haiku battle through Sunday, November 22, 2015.

1. Reading with Seth Price and Conversation With Charline Von Heyl at The Whitney

Multidisciplinary artist Seth Price reads excerpts from his recently published novel, Fuck Seth Price, (Leopard) on Friday, November 20 at 6 p.m. at The Whitney Museum of American Art. Directly following is a conversation between Price and artist Charline Von Heyl, whose works are on view in The Whitney’s second floor galleries. According to publishers, Price’s novel centers on an unnamed male artist who “moves in and out of contemporary non-spaces, all the while meditating on art in the broadest sense.”

Admission is $10 for adults or $8 for students and seniors. The event takes place in the Susan and John Hess Family Theater of the museum, located at 99 Gansevoort Street, New York NY 10014. www.whitney.org.
