Culture on the Cheap
THIS FRIDAY: Death Warmed Over
This item comes my friend and co-proprietress of The Street Spot: Luna Park. This Friday, June 25, starting at 7:00 p.m. she, Chris RWK, Veng, Cake and Becki Fuller will be celebrating the opening of their group show Death Warmed Over. Here’s the 411 per The Street Spot:
On Friday, June 25th, death will come knocking on the door of Williamsburg’s Fresthetic, with the opening of Cake, Chris RWK, Veng, Luna Park, and Becki Fuller’s show “Death Warmed Over”. Through their paintings and photography, each artist has embarked on an exploration into the many nuances to be found in the meaning of ’death’ and have incorporated their unique interpretations into their art. For some, death is found in the decay and destruction of what was once fresh and new or in the struggles with the demons that plague and sometimes consume us. For others it can be found in cultural practices, such as the festivities of Halloween, the spiritual relationship between the Native American warrior and their prey, or in taking a closer look at life in Mexico, a country who’s intimacy with death permeates their culture…
Among the goodies promised are live painting, a scavenger hunt and free drinks. Check it out!
