Friday is traditionally a day to look really busy first thing in the morning, up until, say, NOON, and then start to think about what the hell you are going to wear to go out tonight to see street/graff/public art in Brooklyn. Hookin up a LOOK for tonight ma!
You might like this one – fine artist and graff writer John Breiner presents the third installment of this group of grand champions since 2003, and it’s incredible to see how young artists mature in their work over time. Many in the show are known on the street as graff/street artists and naturally have continued to refine and explore their artistic abilities, now including what can roundly be described as fine art in a multitude of disciplines. The labels don’t really matter of course, the talent does. No doubt this happy reunion at Factory Fresh is going to be pumping with energy and excitement tonight.
Saturday Night Bushwick Open Late “This Beat is Sick” features 9 spaces
including the Opening of new gallery “Famous Accountants”
Bushwick is still wildly alive with people who create – and it hasn’t been blanded yet; still too dicey, too ethnic, and like, there isn’t even bottle service. Unless you bring it in a paper bag.
New space Famous Accountants straddles the edge of Bushwick in Ridgewood, as if poised to run for it. Saturday they open with “Twenty-Three”. A shared work/gallery space run by artists Ellen Letcher and Kevin Regan who were part of the now-closed Pocket Utopia on Flushing Ave, the new space is not looking for a hook to be cool, which is so cool.
They’re also planning TV Parties! – inspired by the lampooning of apathetic consumer culture expressed in the classic Black Flag song:
Saturday night’s opening will be in conjunction with Norte Maar’s THIS BEAT IS SICK: Bushwick Art Spaces Stay Open Late.
Participating spaces include: Norte Maar, English Kills, Centotto, Factory Fresh, Grace Exhibition Space, Laundromat, Lumenhouse, Privateer, Sugar, and Famous Accountants.
