Centre-fuge cycle 16
The Centre-fuge public art project just announced its seventeenth cycle … somewhat out of cycle. Indeed, the derilect East First Street trailer hasn’t displayed new artwork since the end of December. While not characteristic of the usual bimonthly schedule, it’s not like the crew hasn’t been busy. In the intervening months, Centre-fuge organized the painting of various street containers and cement blocks along East Houston (for the neverending capital works project), and even crossed the harbor to impart art on Staten Island.
Artists represented in Cycle 17 are Erik Martinez, Hiss, King Bee, Kristy McCarthy, Ramiro Davaro-Comas, Shaun Edwards and Vballentine. Painting commences next week, with the final murals on view beginning June 22; it runs through August 13.
As previously reported, the Centre-fuge initiative was recently extended through the end of 2015. That’s three solid years of quality from co-curators Pebbles Russell and Jonathan Neville, who founded the project as a tribute to their late friend Mike Hamm.
