The works in Stranger Things at Outpost Artists Resources highlight the high stakes of our attitudes toward human bodies.
Ende Tymes, the increasingly extensive “festival of noise and abstract liberation,” successfully returned for its fifth incarnation last week.
For those determined to see art in Bushwick off the beaten path, Outpost should be a staple. What’s so lovely about this space is that it seems centered around community and dialogue. The current exhibition, Hearts Gymnastics, curated by Yevgeniya Baras, is no exception.
Despite its name, the sprawling weekend (June 1–3) of Bushwick Open Studios actually overtakes the bounds of one neighborhood into the greater North Brooklyn art scene, including some spaces in another borough entirely.
This Sunday January 16th, Outpost Artists Resources will be hosting a night of retro animated advertising curated by Willy Hartland, a distinguished New York City animator. The event, Fresher, Smoother, Creamy, and Delicious: Adverts and other Animated Weirdness from the 50s & 60s, begins at 6pm.
This Saturday, November 27, we’re wrapping up the exhibition portion of #TheSocialGraph with a listening party for Paddy Johnson’s “Sound of Art” vinyl. The festivities will take place 6-9pm.
Yes, you may have been to the Sound of Art launch party, bought the t-shirts, even won the Candyass football (oh wait, that was just me, nevermind) but did anyone actually listen to the damn thing? Well, we’re going to change all that this Saturday night! BONUS: party starts at 6pm and Man Bartlett’s “#24hKith” (2010) performance ends at 7pm, so you’ll get to watch the conclusion of one of his signature 24h performances with fellow art lovers before enjoying the beats.
In two weeks, #TheSocialGraph will open at Outpost in Bushwick, Brooklyn and we’re incredibly excited. What is #TheSocialGraph? It is an evolving exploration of the burgeoning field of social media art and the relation of contemporary art with this populist tool as a medium, facilitator, and subject for art.
I am the curator of the project and I’ve pulled together a number of interesting artists, writers, social media mavens, and others to share ideas and explore possibilities presented by the intersection of visual art and social media. Some of the art in #TheSocialGraph will be about social media, some will use social media as an integral component of the finished project, and some will be more of an experiment so we’re not exactly sure what to call it.
