Illustrators Jon Burgerman and Jim Avignon have been busily collaborating in the deep, dark recesses of the Factory Fresh basement on a series of works that will go on display this Thursday, Feb. 12 in a show called Anxiety Room. If you’re in Brooklyn, check ‘em out! The show will be up through March 15.

Disorienting times call for disorienting art. Factory Fresh, in Brooklyn, has a gallery-sized maze that leads viewers around bends and into dead-ends, all covered in various layers of sensory-overload paint. A collaboration between Celso, infinity, former Keith Haring collaborator LA2 and the mysterious Stikman, the maze takes the concept of the graffiti-covered alleyway and turns it into a total funhouse. (Full disclosure: Celso is my partner-in-crime, romantic and otherwise.) One of my favorite touches was the ceiling, where the artists installed bubble mirrors that delivered a warped viewing experience of the entire scenario. 

The show is up through Dec. 2nd.

Sam Horine, Jake Dobkin, Street Stars and the super awesome Luna Park are havin’ a show at Factory Fresh, in Brooklyn, and it kicks off tonight. I can’t be there because I’m currently battling the giant burritos of Southern California. But I nonetheless managed to lay my hands on a few of their photographs in advance of their opening tonight. Here’s a preview from the exhibit, Quality of Life. Break a leg, guys! 

The show opens tonight at 6pm and is up until October 31st.
