SATURDAY, MAY 2ND, 1 – 7 PM
On May 2nd, coinciding with the closing of the exhibition MYTH AND MUTATIONS, Richie Brown will present a final reading of the “Brown Magick Oracle Deck“. Did you miss your chance to have your fortune read during the opening reception? Do you want to know why no one at work likes you? Now is your chance to sit alongside the artist and have your destiny revealed by the self-described “psychedelic priest.”
Featured in Animal and the Brooklyn Paper, Richie Brown’s “Brown Magick Oracle Deck” includes 42 cards containing symbols from pop culture – aliens, googly eyed poo – and established mythologies including devil, unicorns.
In addition oracle readings by Brown, this will be the final day to view the works of Rachel Maclean, Jonathan Monaghan, Yara Travieso, Wang Yefeng, and Yaloopop. The exhibition MYTH AND MUTATIONS features works that combines symbols of the past with subject matter found in contemporary culture including emojis, memes, video games, and consumer products. The artists demonstrate that mythologies forever transform, coalesce, and split into new allegories. However, as these allegories undergo certain metamorphic changes, they acquire a close relation to present-day desires, fears, truths, and morals. On display is a diverse range of mediums including video installation, animation, illustration, and 3D printed sculpture. The exhibition also marks the New York debut of works by Rachel Maclean and Yaloopop.
