From The New York Shitty Inbox: Tonight At Concrete Utopia

The details I received about this event are scant (READ: I got a mass email) but follows is the press release:

Spork Used As Knife (and other disconcerting events)

Opening Friday, April 1, 7-10

Featuring artists Maurice Doherty, Shana Moulton, Hilary Sand, Dave Sherry, and Curver Thoroddsen.
The exhibition investigates humor and performance and their unique ability to reflect the absurdity of everyday life. The history of performance art offers the medium as a means of rebellion, the act of breaking with the current state of art and politics. The work featured in “Spork Used As Knife” rather ruptures the personal experience of everyday life by forcing the viewer to turn his or her perspective, to view it from a skewed angle. The mirrored reflection of life by art comes ever closer in performance, and with the comfort offered by humor, begins to break down this distinction.

Each artist in the show approaches these barriers between the quotidian and The Quotidian from a different perspective, and through different mobilizations of the banal and the humorous.

This is a really exciting show, and has been an amazing opportunity to work with some brilliant artists.

Spork Used As Knife
Opening Reception: April 1, 2011 starting at 7:00 p.m.
Concrete Utopia
72 Scholes Street
Brooklyn, New York 11206

After I took the above images a couple of male passerbys remarked:

I wonder if he’ll put live chicks and bunnies in there again?

Um, after the colossal shit storm last year I ssupect that will not be happening this time around.

From The New York Shitty Photo Pool: Charles J. King

Charles J King Iron & Steel Scrap: Bushwick Brooklyn

Last night I received a call from Chris Arnade. He wanted to know where this building was located (Grand Avenue) and how he could learn more about about its founder: Charles J. King. I suggested the Brooklyn Daily Eagle archives and later did a little digging. I didn’t learn anything about the man behind this wonderful building— but I learned who he was not. Without further ado I present for your April Fool’s Day delectation a case of mistaken identity and a slipped mickey courtesy of the December 16, 1900 edition of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle. Enjoy!

So there!
