This Friday, December 9th, Luna and I will be participating in the Robots Will Kill and Friends show at Mighty Tanaka. All artists in the show have collaborated or been involved with RWK during the 10 years that it has existed, which pretty much guarantees an eclectic mix of styles and a fun opening. It also marks the second anniversary of Mighty Tanaka, as well as being the second show in their new space, so come out and wish the guys a Happy Birthday!
The fall art season is in full swing with numerous openings this weekend alone.
Tonight Seenoevilseenoevilsee Evil featuring Jeremiah Maddock, Daniel Trocchio & Amanda Wong opens at Factory Fresh in Bushwick.
Also opening tonight at Exit Art in Chelsea is Alternative Histories: a History of New York City Alternative Art Spaces since the 1960s.
The Dumbo Arts Festival 2010 starts today and runs all weekend. Saturday afternoon, Mighty Tanaka will be presenting 2 art battles in The Rumble Room: THE ELC BATTLE: Abe Lincoln Jr vs Royce Bannon and THE URNEWYORK BATTLE: 2Esae vs SKI.
While you’re in Dumbo, be sure to check for murals by the likes of Chris Stain, Imminent Disaster, Jordan Seiler and others on Plymouth, Main and Washington Streets.
Finally, Saturday night Pandemic Gallery opens Split Personality: A Solo Show byVilaykorn Sayaphet.

PaperGirl-NY State rolled into the Dumbo Arts Center for its New York City debut this week. Featuring work by over 100 artists from 12 countries, the exhibit moves on to the Armory this weekend before taking Albany’s Marketplace Gallery by storm the following weekend. The exhibit includes all manner of styles and mediums and there are a number of pieces I wouldn’t mind landing on my doorstep!
