Photography: Bushwick Collective Part 3 and Miscellaneous
If you follow me through my various social media accounts, you may recall that the other day I was at Elsewhere to catch Hot Snakes with Vundabar and Meat Wave. There will be more on that at a later date; but in the meantime, I commute from my home/workspace in Corona, Queens to my day job’s office in Soho, and then I wind up commuting from my day job to wherever the shows are — typically taking the E or C train at Spring Street up to 14th Street and 8th Avenue, to transfer to the L train into North Williamsburg and Bushwick. And if you commute through the 14th Street and 8th Avenue A,C,E and L station, you’re familiar with an attention grabbing Life Underground sculptures in the station. While whimsical, surreal and cartoonish, individual pieces are a incisive criticism of capitalism, class and political corruption that’s as timely as when they were initially commissioned in the 90s.
When I got off the L train at Jefferson Street, I caught some new artwork at The Bushwick Collective that had been put up a few days before during the Bushwick block party.
