LAST CHANCE!: HEAVY METAL
John Chamberlain was many things — Navy pilot, hairdresser, filmmaker, merrymaker, sculptor and master recycler, turning scrap metal, auto parts, foam rubber and other detritus into shockingly beautiful art. For the Guggenheim Museum show “John Chamberlain: Choices,” curator Susan Davidson, who fondly recalls him as “a salty dude” (which explains titles like “Lord Suckfist”), has arranged 110 of his works more or less chronologically along the museum’s spiral ramp. Check out “Doomsday Flotilla,” a lineup of auto-chassis underbodies that look like the NordicTracks of hell; “Miss Lucy Pink,” with its flirty little door handle; and several smoky, polymer resin pieces that suggest fortune cookies. You can even recline on “Couch,” a parachute-covered moonscape of foam rubber. Whatever you do, get there soon: The show closes Sunday. 1071 Fifth Ave., at 88th Street; pay-what-you-wish Saturdays, 5:45 to 7:45 p.m.; guggenheim.org
