4. A Post-Apocalyptic Graffiti Wonderland at The Knockdown Center
Wastedland 2, a site-specific, film installation that transforms spaces into three-dimensional, post-apocalyptic graffiti wonderlands, is coming our way. On Thursday, September 15th, “questions of fate and self-will collide with graffiti folk-lore through wordplay, sculpture, artifacts, and characters” when Wastedland 2 transforms the Knockdown Center into a large-scale, immersive art installation. Created by Andrew H. Shirley, and the actors and members of the notorious Brooklyn-based 907 graffiti crew, viewers will enter the narrative, re-defining how one traditionally engages with film and artwork.
Wastedland 2 spent this past year touring across the United States. Now at the end of its tour, viewers are invited to join Wastedland 2 at the Knockdown Center for a culmination and celebration of that tour. Wastedland 2, Immersive Art Installation and Film Screening, will take place on September 15th, with exhibition and performances from 7:00 to 12 am, and screenings at 9:00pm and 11:00 pm. The Knockdown Center is located at 52-19 Flushing Avenue in Maspeth.
