Hey guys, welcome to Summer! If you’re anything like me you’re still vibing off this week’s cosmic combo of the full moon with the Summer Solstice. Ride that wave through Sunday if you can, with a few suggestions here…
But firstly, we have to tip our hat to the good folks at Secret Project Robot who recently announced that they’ll be leaving their space at Melrose Street at the end of the summer. “We’ve moved before, from Monster Island in Williamsburg to Bushwick, and we shall persevere, and move again… In many ways, We are ourselves to blame, we’ve helped to create a hipper safer neighborhood and higher rents, as so often do, have followed… ” They’re hosting a ton of events in the coming weeks, including a series of dance parties this weekend.
But wait! There’s more!
“Performance artist Jake Dibeler […] uses his unique brand of disarming, semi-tragic humor to sweep us along for the ride. Like a full-throated rendition of your favorite pop song in a sleazy bar, Dibeler’s performances may have the veneer of naive optimism but they twang with the dissonance of an emotional breakdown.” -Philadelphia Weekly
DREAM BABY DREAM
June 24–July 29, 2016
Opening Reception Friday, June 24 – 7–10pm
Greenpoint Terminal Gallery | 67 West St. #320 | Greenpoint
Greenpoint Terminal Gallery is pleased to present Dream Baby Dream, an exhibition of new works by Maren Karlson, Chason Matthams, and Ben Pederson.
Studio 10 is pleased to announce another Matt Freedman and Tim Spelios Endless Broken Time drumming, drawing and talking performance, the twelfth in their current monthly series.
Complementing the spoken word with the most basic story telling tools—sticks and drums to give impetus and pacing, and charcoal and paper to fill in the details—Spelios and Freedman will create an endless cycle of fractured narratives. The stories will be drawn and told by Freedman and will take their rhythm and form from the aberrant and improvised syncopation of Spelios’ broken time drumming.
A group show featuring works by Vanessa Disler, Jacob Dwyer, Emily Hill, Mike Pratt
