NYC: Kayrock - Join us for a #J20 protest art making event
In solidarity with the #J20 Art Strike, Kayrock will be closed for regular business tomorrow, Friday, January 20th.
As stated in the #J20 call to action, "We consider Art Strike to be one tactic among others to combat the normalization of Trumpism—a toxic mix of white supremacy, misogyny, xenophobia, militarism, and oligarchic rule. Like any tactic, it is not an end in itself, but rather an intervention that will ramify into the future. It is not a strike against art, theater, or any other cultural form. It is an invitation to motivate these activities anew, to reimagine these spaces as places where resistant forms of thinking, seeing, feeling, and acting can be produced."
In place of regular business, we invite you to use our studio as a place of protest and creation. Come by, paint signs, silkscreen patches, etc. Help us show the country that this is not normal, and the arts community will continue to be a voice against hate.
We'll be open for visitors 12pm - 5pm tomorrow, and are located at
1205 Manhattan Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11222
To buzz into the building, dial #007 on the outer intercom. Or call (718) 963-2020, if you have any problems finding the entrance.
The closest subway stops are the G at Greenpoint and the 7 at Vernon Blvd/ Jackson Ave.
