Despite a rainy Tuesday, there is a reason to smile. The new week in Bushwick unfolded a whole bunch of great events to attend. If you want to know about everything, look at the full event listings here, or if you want to know specifically about the galleries and when are they open, the calendar is here. Also we handpicked five of this weeks events that we like the best, and strongly recommend you go!
This week we have a lot of performance art, festival or experimental music and video art, and a BOS benefit!
The Ende Tymes Festival is an annual celebration of noise, experimental music, and video art. The festival is organized thanks to a collaboration of Outpost Artists Resources & Secret Project Robot. The organizers are promising over 40 artists working with street-level avant-garde sound and video (END, Anthony Saunders, or Lussuria etc.)
Did you know that Marina Abramovic wanted to open a performance art foundation in Bushwick? In the end she went for Hudson, but it doesn’t mean that we don’t have enough performance art in Buswhick as it is! Friday night should be dedicated to performance art. Microscope Gallery will present Just a Girl, performances by Angela Washko & Ann Hirsch. You will see “incredibly misogynistic realms within World of Warcraft” by Angela Washko, and Ann Hirsch will present a completely new piece in which she grapples with her “new” finally developed female body. $6
Grace Exhibition Space is a beautiful large loft space dedicated to performance art. On Friday night, Grace will present Carlos Monroy, Theo Pelmus, Luisa Nobrega and Matthew Silver. Donation of $10 will get you in.
There is a garage on 59 Waterbury Street (corner of Scholes). This garage will be open, free and inviting on Friday night for you to see some excellent performances by Heaven’s Gate, Crown the Invisible, Warcries.
To honor and support all the great work that all volunteer organization Arts in Bushwick is putting toward Bushwick Open Studios, attend their benefit in Sunday evening. It will be traditionally held at Grace Exhibition Space, and for $50 you can raffle yourself a beautiful new art piece by one of the artists who donated their work.
