Artists and artwork are buzzing around one of Williamsburg’s newest hives for the creative spirit in the July heat as Causey Contemporary prepares the sweetest part of all this industry for you, a Buenos Aires based collective called The Honeycomb. King bee and artist Trystan Bates has sent out the signal to 27 artists from 8 countries to present new works within the theme of “Ritual” for this show.

Imputing the magic and mysticism of ritual has inspired art of every discipline for thousands of years: authors, musicians, dancers, auteurs, photographers, sculptors, and painters all assist in our transcending the limitations of the physical world.

This neighborhood of Brooklyn has been the site of Rites of Passage, creative Rituals, and some say, Last Rites, as a place of collaboration for a diverse artist community and a hive for Street Art for nearly two decades. Across the street from two pieces by Bristol Street Artist Nick Walker and around the corner from a huge wall by Brooklyn Street Artists Skewville, the rituals of preparation continue anew. Here are some of the preparations inside and outside for tonight’s show.
