NYC PREMIERE: 9/15/17 “Wastedland 2” Immersive Film Installation Ends Year-Long National Tour at Knockdown Center

Knockdown Center is pleased to present “Wastedland 2,” a nomadic site-specific, immersive film installation. Created by artist Andrew H. Shirley, along with the members of the notorious Brooklyn-based 907 graffiti crew, the installation’s environment uses the post-apocalyptic tableau from the film of the same name to allow the viewer to enter the psychology of the film’s narrative, redefining the way one traditionally engages with film and artwork. “Wastedland 2” poses questions of fate and the self, while exploring graffiti folklore through wordplay, sculpture, artifacts, and characters that appear in both the film and the installation. This special one-day event takes place FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 15th with an opening reception from 7pm – Midnight, Screenings at 9 and 11p. Music performances will take place throughout the evening.

Artists in the exhibition include ADAM VOID, Amy Smalls, CASH4, DARKCLOUDS, EKG, George Vidas, Greg Henderson, NOXER, RAMBO, Ryan C. Doyle, SMELLS, UFO 907, William Thomas Porter, WOLFTITS.

Performances by CRAIG ANDERSONIC, DIRTYFINGER, DJ DOG DICK,  JACER RACER & THE UFHOES, KARMA KIDS,  NINJASONIK and more.
