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.

FOR all you Valentines:

Copulation Dancing MEETS Extreme Sports

And AMAZING Art & Vector Insanity …MAJOR LAZER

Directed by Eric Wareheim

Edited and Animation by Zachary Johnson & Jeffery Max fatalfarm.com

Art and Vector Insanity by Kevin O’Neill & Karisa Senavitis willworkforgood.org

Produced by Clark Reinking

Says Will Work For Good, “We worked with Eric Wareheim on the aesthetic direction for his video for Major Lazer’s “Pon De Floor” featuring some of NY’s raddest dagga dancers. We wanted to take them off the typical club floor and put them on more mundane floors in an imaginary neighborhood where they could go about their business in private. All of the home environments were created as large paintings which were then photographed and transformed into a bizarre real estate fly-through by the dudes at Fatal Farm. Additionally we created a series of vector patterns used for the “otherworlds” featured throughout the video. All in all a sick mix of low/high tech and Eric’s always awesome visions.”

Very Sad to Hear the News of the Passing of Alexander McQueen

What the heck does this have to do with street art and graffiti art? Hang out till the second part of this video. We won’t likely forget his famous robotic spray-painting of a white dress in ’99.
