featuring new work by Anthony Browne, Tyler Considine, Eric Wolfgang Eisenhut, and Letha Wilson
Exhibition dates: December 16 – 19, 2011
a weekend long group show bringing together works by Anthony Browne, Tyler Considine, Eric Wolfgang Eisenhut and Letha Wilson. Developed with the idea that the artist is a builder of new worlds, artists were selected on the criteria that their work engages with process and construction, emphasizing material and method even in their final, finished state. BUILT presents a collection of two and three-dimensional works that re-perform their construction for the viewer.
The exhibition features a nine-foot square cube in Norte Maar’s front room. Built from materials scavenged from the streets of Bushwick, Browne’s cube is constructed without consideration for color, line, surface, dimension, uniformity, or form.
First gig in NYC? With my Good Kids brothers at Home Sweet Home, at our weekly party.
Favorite party ever played? Probably a Powrplnt benefit party at Bossa Nova a few months back – I was running on no sleep after shooting a video for three days straight and made the wildest set I ever have, and got to DJ for my sis Kay Rizz.
Favorite woman DJ There are so many…Venus X, Juliana Huxtable, Asma of Nguzunguzu, A E Zimmer, Jubilee, Uniique, SHYBOI, Compton Chic…not to mention all the girls singing and rapping, making music too– Lafawndah, Kelela, Kay Rizz, Rahel, Jungle Pussy, Princess Nokia just to name some highlights. It is a very inspiring moment in music out here right now!
Best record you’ve ever bought It is a little hard to remember buying a record.
How would you define the term Discwoman? My good friend Thurmon recently said – “I probably just have fear of mortality and I just want to make things that make people move, which is like the opposite of dying."
Pet peeve when DJing Do not ask me to play Aviici.
Do you dance when you DJ? How can I not?
Can you DJ when wasted? I’d rather not.
What’s best compliment you’ve ever gotten? People who I am inspired and motivated by say the same of me – it has happened in a few transcendent ways.
Place you’d like to play? Most places, but right now I want to play in London and more rooftops, in general. Something you want everyone to know about you I run a record label called DOOM DAB and you can hear my mixes here :)
