From the D.I.Y. scene in Brooklyn comes a show of epic proportion featuring art and design themed around the greatest celebrity of the modern era, the BIKE!!!
This exhibition draws together talented artists from NY to California around the launch of PORTER CYCLES, an independent bike builder established in 2010 in Brooklyn. All types of media will be represented: film, prints, photography, sculpture, installation, sound art, performance, and more. Also, a variety of weird bikes, performance track bikes, and cargo trailers will be displayed. Everything will be auctioned between 8pm and midnight. All proceeds go to the artists unless donated to Porter Cycles by artist.
DJ’s, live-silk-screening, and bike performances will run throughout the night.

Porter Cycles exists to serve the bicycle, cyclists, and bicycle culture.
Porter Cycles designs and builds human powered vehicles of all types, including practical use vehicles, utility vehicles, and carriage trailers for the commercial market.
Porter Cycles’ future goal is to replace the semi-truck+trailer with a human-powered equivalent capable of long distance travel under heavy cargo through all conditions.
Porter Cycles is an active participant of the sustainable-living movement.
