Make sure you have some spare energy, or at least can find some in a can Thursday night so you can be sure to attend to Red Bull Curates event at Villain in Williamsburg. All summer long Red Bull has been stopping in major metropolis’ across the country, holding a competition to bring a small number of carefully curated artists to open a group show in Miami at this year’s Art Basel. As a means of selecting said artists, they’ve put together lists of 20 or so in each city they visit, and choosing the best from their work in a very specific, very unique medium: painting a custom Red Bull Fridge!
Who’da thunk it, huh? So New York City is the final destination, and with the fridges all well on their way to finished, Thursday night will see the winners picked with much merriment made. We’re extra stoked on the event, because not one but two Мишка employees were selected to participate in the New York throwdown. Royce Bannon, who works with us and has also curated shows at 350 Broadway, and L’Amour Supreme (who’s entry you can get a sneak peek at above thanks to Clutter Mag) are both in contention for the coveted Basel spot. Go cheer them on Thursday night, and also enjoy the DJ styling of a very special guest who we happen to know about and you definitely won’t want to miss.
