Five Things to Do in NYC This Week, from AIPAD to Zola

• Join us tomorrow evening at the Museum of Arts and Design for a meeting of Superscript’s Architecture and Design Book Club. Up for discussion: design themes in Émile Zola‘s The Ladies’ Paradise (Au Bonheur des Dames). Arrive early to take advantage of free/pay-what-you-wish Thursday night admission and see the current exhibition, “After the Museum: The Home Front 2013,” which includes a related installation by Superscript, “On Display.”

• You say “tomato,” we say Andrew Kuo is a genius. His solo exhibition of new acrylic paintings opens tomorrow at Marlborough Chelsea.

• As if you needed more reasons to adore Scandinavia, the Streaming Museum has cooked up “Nordic Outbreak,” a series of events and exhibitions taking place throughout NYC. Saturday’s symposium will consider what “the Nordic” has come to mean in the digital age and illuminate an “outbreak” from conventional aesthetic ideas about the Nordic concept.

• Put down your iPad and head to AIPAD. The megaphotoshow, presented by the Association of International Photography Art Dealers, runs Thursday through Sunday at the Park Avenue Armory.

• Finally, ’tis the season for…Cambodia? Jaa! This weekend, the School of Constructed Environments at Parsons The New School for Design presents “Living Arts City: Art and Urbanism in Phnom Penh and New York,” a two-day colloquium exploring the interconnectedness of creativity, urban ecology, and community. Speakers include designers, curators, and architects from Phnom Penh and New York.
