Pandemic Breaks Out Inaugural Show Featuring Epic EKG Piece

It’s baaaaaack.  And not a minute too soon.

Pandemic Gallery re-opens tonight in the Navy Yard area in Brooklyn with a bigger more commodious location for freethinkers unconcerned with the white box. Rooted in the graffiti and Street Art scene, proprietors and co-curating artists Robin Drysdale and Keely Brandon apply their vision of what they love about the street in its rawest form in a way that will never require the bloviating self-appointed art “critics” to know their value.

EKG, the down-by-law all-city heartbeat with an orange china marker is the inaugural symbol signifying script writer on the walls of Pandemic tonight – a fitting tribute to the mark making traditions of NYC that predate the modern, communicating and capturing the ions and lightwaves and innerworkings that flicker through his mind. EKG is steeped in history and theory and swimming in a unique diagrammatic flow chart that envelopes his universe and he shares it with guests tonight across “the 528 square foot schematic drawing that I’ve been working on,” he says.

At the end of the show, the mammoth EKG installation will then be deconstructed and sold off in pieces like the former industrial artist neighborhood of Williamsburg that eventually became too expensive for the artists who brought it to life, and galleries like Pandemic.

Included at the opening will be an EKG print release and head rocking performances by Fake Hooker and Unstoppable Death Machines. Also, says EKG, “lots of exclamation points!!!” !!!!!!
