Opening Party: Saturday May 22, 7-10PM MF Gallery: 213 Bond St. Brooklyn, NY 11217 MF Gallery is excited to present: "I Need Your Skull", In this show, over 30 international artists were asked to present a piece depicting a human skull... All the money raised from sales of the skull art will be used to build a giant skull on the facade of the MF Gallery building. The artists include: Jenny Bird Alcantara, Annie Aube, Nicoz Balboa, Dave Brockie, Candy, Fernando Carpaneda, Gene Coffey, Matt Dickson, Dennis Dread, Kirsten Flaherty, Heather Gargon, Christina Graf, Guicho, Jenny Harada, Death Head, Scott Holloway, Lance Laurie, Abe Lincoln Jr., Mike Maas, Drew Maillard, Sarah Antoinette Martin, Angie Mason, Dennis McNett, Rodrigo Melo, MCA, Munk One, Gilbert Oh, Chris Peters, Porkchop, Riot Queer, Ed Repka, Lou Rusconi, Frank Russo, John Russo, Martina Secondo Russo, Chad Savage, Anna Semenova, Joe Simko, James Wrona, Genevive Zacconi & More...
Our dream for the new MF Gallery in Brooklyn (A.K.A. The "Fortress MF") has always been to adorn the facade with a 20 foot 3-D skull. Made of fiberglass or a similar material, it will be reminiscent of an old Spook House ride, and would make The Fortress MF an unmissable Brooklyn Landmark! This is a big project that has been in the planning stages for a long time, but one that we have not yet been able to realize due to time and monetary constraints. "I Need Your Skull" will help to make MF Gallery's Giant Skull Project a reality! All of the proceeds from this show will go towards building the giant skull. As a part of this show, we will be revealing concept sketches for the construction of the "Fortress MF Skull" for the very first time!
