"Death Warmed Over" @ Fresthetic / Brooklyn NY

My friends from RobotsWillKill are having a group show coming up at the Fresthetic Gallery in Brooklyn NY. Here are all infos:

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 & destruction 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 taking a closer look at life in Mexico, a country who's intimacy with death permeates their culture.

The show runs from June 25th - July 30th, with an opening reception on Friday, June 25th from 7-10pm. There will be an art scavenger hunt, live painting in the back yard, and while we may be morbid, we aren't cheap, so the drinks are on us! So, come shake your bones to the musical styling's of our favorite DJ Royce Bannon and have a time so good that it will haunt your memory for years to come!
