The Armory holds many cultural events, especially during Armory weekend. One event, called “New York Sh###y,” was an outdoor art show hosted by Uta Brauser, Josef Pinlac and the group called Con Artist Collective.
The main theme of this event was “Street Art,” with topics involving politics, self-expression and conceptualization. The Con Artist Collective gathered several artists together to showcase their work in two locations. The starting location was outside of the Armory, where the artists produced live art, while the Con Artist gallery space, located at 119 Ludlow St., was the base for their murals, installations and the rest of their work. “In the Con Artist Collective, we find any expression from nitty gritty urban raw energy to conceptual design with positive messages [including] lock on sculptures, stencil work, wheatpasted posters, murals, theater, sculptural street installations, live art, graffiti [and] art trucks,” explained Brauser.
The featured artists and their Instagram accounts are as follows: Emil Tibell (@emiltibell), T.mas (@tomaso_albertini), Motherpigeon (@motherpigeonbrooklyn), Wizard Skull (@wizardskull), G Piedmont, Frank Ape (@Frank_ape), Dave Tree, Lenore Cohen (@lenorecohen), Fishwithbraids (@fishwithbraids), Josef Pinlac (@istillheartnewyork), Ty Douglas (@padty), Julz Roth (@Julz_art), Jenny Heissenhuber (@madam_sloth), Sarah Wang, the Lady Jacqueline, Roland, Soledad, Omer Gal (Omergal.com), Jet’aime Pizarro (@dr.artist.phd), James McGann (@maskbread), Subtexture, G-spot Crew and Lucky Rabbit. The event continued through Saturday, March 12 in their downtown location on Ludlow Street.
