OUTLAW ARTS Presents: The 21st Precinct x Gashouse District

The 21st precinct was built in 1863 and acted as a functioning precinct until 1914. We will have a pop up gallery space and 4 floors of murals, wheatpastes, graffiti and installations by renowned artists from NYC and worldwide. In the tradition of the Outlaw Parties of the late 80′s and early 90′s we will re-invigorate an unused space with a wide range of creative minds working in multiple mediums. Scheduled opening reception is 8/16/14 and will be open for viewing all weekend and a closing event the following weekend. The building is scheduled for demolition the last week of August. This will be the first of an ongoing series with Suzuki Capital at their various properties throughout the boroughs.

In the middle of the night I regularly get a vision of these kind of figures talking to me and telling me how to live. They are made out all the things that i munch or have walked past in disgust thinking why would anyone eat that. I wake up and sketch them which is the starting point. There is then alot of running round supermarkets grabbing items in a self induced hysteria as if I was on the game show Super Market Sweep but I am the only contestant and no one is cheering me on.

Arkitip No. 0060 – Max Fish Issue Release

We are proud to celebrate the release of our 60th issue edition at the new Max Fish in New York City. Max Fish was an uncontested downtown New York City institution. From 1989–2013 it was a gathering place for artists, skateboarders, musicians and the occasional celebrity to congregate because it was the kind of place where all these people felt at home. It was a social vortex for these groups and many of the friendships that began here have given birth to inestimable projects, ideas and collaborations among its patrons. The owner of Max Fish is German-born artist Ulli Rimkus, who set up shop on Ludlow Street in 1989, when the neighborhood was more famous for selling dope than cocktails. Part dive bar and part gallery; the bar hosted themed art shows and amassed an impressive permanent collection that included “Julio Iglesias” by Mark Flood, “Rat Cop” by Tom Otterness and “Bronx Elvis” by John Ahearn. In the mid to late ‘90s, as a broader skate culture started to bleed into the music, art and fashion worlds, Max Fish started to become a hang out for skateboarders.

We will have the issue available for sale as well as an installation of photos by contributing artists. Owner + artist Ulli Rimkus, guest designer André Razo, and other Max Fish alumni will be in attendance. This is a ONE NIGHT ONLY event. Made possible with support from Converse CONS.

Wednesday 6 August 2014 from 7:00 – 9:00PM EST
@ Max Fish: 120 Orchard Street  New York, NY 10002 USA
