This past Saturday was the opening of The Future Is Now pt II at 323 East. This exhibition, subtitled “Brooklyn Meets Detroit”, features the artwork of Ellis G, Kimyon Huggins, and AVONE. All were present at the opening, giving Detroit art enthusiasts and collectors an opportunity to meet the artists and get a taste of what the East Coast has to offer. You can check out all the available works on 323East.com
The side of our gallery has been a rotating mural project for the past 3 years. You may remember that Ron English put of an epic wheat paste mural over the summer. Well, the weather had taken its toll on the mural and the previous BASK mural reappeared. All of these layers made for a great back drop to create a Bk style mural.
Available artwork from the show can be viewed on 323East.com
To coincide with the show is AVONE’s third 1xRUN print release, “Silver on Greene.” It is a hand pulled 2 color screen print he produced in his Bushwick, BK studio. The background image of this print is of a classic door on Greene St in Soho and features hints of NYC’s most notorious writers. The print will be available starting November 7th at 8pm EST here.
The opening was followed by an after party to mark the release of Kimyon’s record, Platform View. The first release from Juan Atkins’ Metroplex Label since 2004. Juan, the originator of Techno, stopped by to check out the opening in preparation for the after party!
Finally, the three artists did an installation in Detroit’s Woodward Windows.
