This week is again smashingly awesome in Bushwick, and we have 5 super-fun events to prove it. Ranging from porn to theater, we are very positive you will love these… 🙂 Let’s enjoy this beautiful bohemia while it lasts!
#1 Film Screening of ‘Lost Bohemia’ @ Brooklyn Fire Proof (Thursday, 7:30pm) $8
Brooklyn Fire Proof one of the oldest multi-functional venues in Bushwick is bringing a film screening of Lost Bohemia. The film tracks the eviction of the photographer Editta Sherman and other artist who lived and worked in the studios above Carnegie Hall. The film screening is followed by the Q&A with the director Josef Astor.
#2 PASSKONTROL presents Two Spring Evenings @ The Bushwick Starr (Friday & Saturday, 8pm) $10
A cult Bushwick band Passkontrol has previously presented an apocalyptical musical play at The Bushwick Starr titled New Hope City. The play was a huge success! Currently, Passkontrol is preparing a short film of the same name. On Friday and Saturday, the band will read the screenplay to the film at The Bushwick Starr. After the reading, Passkontrol will play their hits and new songs (wohoo!) followed by DJs pee-jays and purple haze.
#3 Sculpture Garden @ Onderdonk Farm House (Friday, 6-8pm)
Guys, we need you all to meditate on sunny, dry weather on Friday. Why? Because we plan on chilling at the outdoor opening of a sculpture exhibition at the Onderdonk Farm House. Sculpture Garden will really something to look for. Curated by the famous ladies Deborah Brown and Leslie Heller, the line up of artists is very interesting, and promises of the loveliest art events of the year! Oddly enough, we are still meeting quite a lot of people who haven’t been to the Onderdonk Farm House. Guys, it’s an absolute must. This unlikely occurence of a a beautiful, gentle white 17th century Dutch farm between the warehouses at Flushing Ave is virtually unbelievable. But it’s true!
#4 SMUT! III @ 950 Hart Gallery (Saturday, 7pm)
The Lowbrow Society in conjunction with 950 Hart Gallery, an awesome chill gallery at a Bushwick loft is bringing you an art show on the verge of ehm… porn. The group exhibition deals with a variety of mediums and NSFW taboos from voyeurism, to female power through sexual liberation, to gender exploration, and everything in-between. In addition to all this there will be cool DJs, a photo booth, and all the proceeds collected through the suggested donation will go to support Planned Parenthood.
#5 Liz Ainslie @ AIRPLANE (Saturday, 7-10pm)
Liz Ainslie is a great abstract painter whose colors and shapes will mold your soul. Opened in October 2011, AIRPLANE belongs to the legacy of new awesome artist-run Bushwick galleries. This is their first solo show!
