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. As Knockdown Center begins its exploration of this very intersection through its ambitious programs and expansive architecture, the exhibition brings a dynamic selection of these artists onto its grounds for a month of on-site development, culminating in this day-long celebration of the work and its fluid transformation from environment to stage.
Installation Artists Include:
Hisham Bharoocha and Ranjit Bhatnagar
Raul de Nieves
Brian Chase (of Yeah Yeah Yeahs)

Cloud Becomes Your Hand
