Colectivo Futuro is tough to define. Edited by the London-based trio of Miguel Colmenares, Arash Fattahi, and Oliver Brunetti, the group currently functions as an editorial body that books events, but in the near future the group plans to operate a physical location, start a print magazine, and host a radio show. During the first week of October, they'll get a crack at running a physical location with a pop-up print and drawing exhibition in New York. The show features all New York-based artists including work from Paul Windle, Kike Besada, Elliott Burford, and Akiha Yamakami.

Collective Futures will be open for one night, on October 4, at 178 Delancey Street, New York.

Back in January we wrote about Charles Bergquist's "Everyday Project," during which the artist made a point to complete one unfinished image every day for as long as he could. Bergquist's images and films blend photography, graphic design, motion graphics, and 3D rendering into unnaturally colorful landscapes and portraits. And we're already big fans of his collaborations with Ghostly and his videos for Youth Lagoon. Later this week, Bergquist has a show of new work, called "Anium," opening at the Subtext Gallery in his home base of San Diego.  

Preview new work from the show below, and follow Bergquist on Twitter for more previews of the show. "Anium" will run from September 13 through October 13 at the Subtext Gallery

From 1971-1972, just around the time he was serving some of the first plates of sushi in New York at Gordon Matta-Clark's conceptual Food restaurant, artist Hisachika Takahashi had a habit of asking fellow artists to draw a map of the United States from memory. Takahashi provided each artist with a piece of handmade Japanese paper and collected the sketches, drawings, and paintings in his personal archives. That collection, featuring maps from Takahashi himself, Jasper Johns, Joseph Kosuth, and Juan Downey, opens for the first time in New York this week as part of Takahashi's "From Memory" show.

Check out Joseph Kosuth's coastal-centric rendering, and a few more memory maps below.

"From Memory: Draw A Map of the United States" opens September 13 and runs until October 19 at the Sean Kelly Gallery in New York.

For his latest series of paintings Jake Longstreth replaced the saturated colors and sharp lines of his earlier architecture-centered work, with softer tones, gradients, and more visible marks. The subjects are different this time, too. Instead of suburban landscapes, his imagery is closer to the photo he shot for the cover of the collaborative Dirty Projectors and Bjork album, Mount Wittenberg Orca.

Selections from "Particulate Matter" are being show as part of the group show Being Paul Schrader at the Monya Rowe Gallery in New York until July 26.
