Dzine @ Brooklyn Museum

Dzine @ Brooklyn Museum, originally uploaded by victorybros.

Dzine’s contribution to the Brooklyn Museum’s Infinite Island: Contemporary Caribbean Art show.

The video is about Benjamin Melendez, who formed the Ghetto Brothers and brokered a massive gang truce, South Bronx Puerto Rican gang in the early 70′s. He also formed a band by the same name that played some dope beats.

Now that’s a boat!

Dzine (who was pictured below) made a boat for the Venice Biennial this year. This is one heckuva boat!

DNIPRO
The boat has a total of 9 TV screens. 22 speakers with lights. 8 amps. A Chevy chrome engine with Neon Lighting. Original 1963 Chrome trim and side mirrors from a Chevy Impala. Custom bucket seats, Ostrich leather interior with religous fabric. State of the art Pioneer CD/DJ equipement with Alpine touch screen videos. A laser light show and a smoke machine. Every three inches of the boat (even the steering wheel and turn key to start the boat) is completely new and custom.”

Richard Serra at MOMA

With a few very notable exceptions, I am not a fan of modern sculpture. But the Richard Serra stuff show at MOMA is super dope. It’s some of the only architectural sculpture that transforms spaces in a positive, interesting way. It’s so simple and elegant that it’s not distracting, even if it’s as big as a ship.

Also, being a writer, the rusting of the metal is fascinating.
