“Mummy”, a decapitated head/parade float by Desi Santiago

Dear Shaded Viewers,

"Mummy", a decapitated head/parade float will drive around the Knockdown Center at different times this Saturday, July 5th. She will move around 4pm and 7pm. She's quite a sight and the space is amazing. There will be installations by a group of great artists and many performances going on. Read exhibition info below and here:

Introducing a new generation of artists who are based in New York, partner regularly with alternative event spaces and collectives throughout Brooklyn and beyond, and utilize installation work as a platform for performance.
