Here’s a last-minute addition to our end-all, be-all guide to September art: Bjorn Copeland, co-founder of psychedelic noise collective Black Dice and an inimitable mainstay in North Brooklyn’s music and art scenes, has a new exhibition opening tonight at the Lower East Side’s Jack Hanley Gallery.
As you can see from the video for “Pigs,” below, Black Dice’s brand of experimental electronic music is an exercise in sensory overload, and Copeland applies the same aesthetic to his visual art (not to mention the T-shirts he just designed for DFA). His third solo exhibition with the gallery features works of collage that are described in the press release as “psychotropic Pop assemblages” — the result of “combing the commercial landscape for product detritus and two-dimensional media.”
Check out the opening event, happening from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. tonight, at 327 Broome Street. The exhibition runs until October 6.
