A weekend for art and antiques in the city

New York was made for art lovers and antique collectors. Some don't-miss shows this weekend:

The City of Light was a hive of artistic activity in the 1920s and '30s (also see "Paris and the Avant-Garde" over at the Guggenheim), with photographers like Man Ray, Brassaï and Ilse Bing busily snapping off-kilter cityscapes, as seen in "Twilight Visions: Surrealism, Photography, and Paris," opening at the ICP Friday.

WHAT Want the clown poster hanging in Larry David's office on "Curb Your Enthusiasm"? You'll find it at the Swann Galleries' vintage poster sale, along with skiing posters of the 1930s, telephone ads of the '40s and a rare poster for the Josephine Baker film "Princess Tam Tam."
