Broke-Ass Art Experiments FREE this Thursday (9/27)

This Thursday (that’s tomorrow, in case you were wondering), local instigator Mina Karimi curates a very special art experiment at Bushwick’s very own Secret Project Robot.

The show, called Dead Dudes Done Right, has both visual and musical artists presenting various idiosyncratic takes on – you guessed it – dead dudes such as Jim Morrison, Michael Jackson, and so many more.

If you haven’t been to the new Secret Project Robot, the venue alone is enough to warrant a trip to the Morgan L stop. The non-profit art space is like something out of a Tom Tom Club video. It’s a veritable cultural institution in Brooklyn and a must-see for anyone remotely interested in the vanguard of the art and music world.

In fact, combining art and music is something Secret Project Robot accomplishes particularly well. Nor is Mina Karimi, a practicant of both mediums, any stranger to organizing these sorts of shindigs.

Besides hosting the works of over 17 different visual artists, the exhibition will feature 5 different musical acts, playing the late standards of dead troubadours. The line up will include such neighborhood favs as the Netherlands frontman Timo Ellis performing under his solo moniker, GAZILLION, as well as Dana Schechter’s latest solo project, Insect Ark.

Starting at 7:00pm sharp, the evening promises to be unlike any other exhibition you’ve seen this year. Ms. Karimi invites us all to “witness this monumental portait exhibition extravaganza and rock the shit out of this night.”

Going to a rich kid school when you aren't even given an allowance certainly trains you to live large on the cheap. Armed with such expertise, Jules travelled the globe, surviving off of 50 cent beers and 2 dollar meals everywhere from Buenos Aires to Mumbai. Three years ago he returned to the United States, living first in Baltimore while he settled a debt with the IRS, then in Brooklyn where he plays music and writes. He aspires to one day live in a van on N.15th and Kent.
