MIKE PERRY PRESENTS: GET NUDE GET DRAWN

In 2011, artists Mike Perry and Josh Cochran posted to social media and Craigslist seeking volunteers to pose in the nude for a marathon, two-day drawing session. The concept: to celebrate the nude by enlisting non-professional models and by using social media to build contemporary literacy in the timeless genre. The logistics: over the course of two days, each person would pose for a half hour, and Mike and Josh would create as many portraits as they could. At the end of the event, they would display and sell the drawings at a pop-up exhibition. They called the project “Get Nude Get Drawn.” Since 2011, Mike and Josh have continued organizing the event, gathering a talented roster of participating artists and over 200 models. 

Join Mike Perry, Josh Cochran and 8 other reputable artists this November in posing nude and getting drawn. It's free to sign up and you even get to take home 1 sketch from each artist.  The additional sketches will be displayed as part of the exhibition and sold for $20 each. 

Participating artists include: Mike Perry, Josh Cochran, Amber Vittoria, Andy Friedman, Ellen Kahn, Dadu Shin, Na Kim, Taylor McKimens, Jillian Evelyn and Kaye Blegvag.

DJ Adrian Diaz aka Strawberry Chola

Secret Project Robot is pleased to present an eclectic evening of the whimsical for the Friday Night Programming at The Other Art Fair…
Included will be a surrealists puppet show by brooklyn based Tomi Tait and his theater, Rainbow of Wounded Insects, Alex Patrick Dyck will recite romantic poetry on abstraction, nature and wisdom and a crew from Bio-Glitz will lead a languid colorful parade of guilded and tinted glitter covered bodies walking softly through the art fair to remind us of our interconnectivity. 
For their installation Secret Project Robot will install a black light magic lantern lounge in the heart of the fair, entitled Traveling through Dimensional Rift in the Mystic Jungle.  It will be a psychedelic forrest enclosed in a capsule, where visitors will be immersed in future light created by a past sun, the installation will have paintings, and installation features that deliver a totally dissociative effect, creating a realm, where we can all meet on the astral plane.


Alex Patrick Dyck
Alex Patrick Dyck is a multimedia poet and splosh artist; a romantic hoarder of sentimental trash and trampled roses, an altar builder, and a memory gatherer. They explore their own vulnerability in an attempt to preserve the inherent fragility of natural objects as they encounter resin, metal, and bodily fluids. The incorporation of obscured and disjointed text is used as a way to both establish intimacy with the viewer as well as to remind us that understanding and language are not identic. The works are constantly decaying and changing in texture and color, a grotesque reminder of our own mortality.

Tomi Tait 
Tomi Tait is a Brooklyn-based multimedia artist. His work covers a range of mediums working with painting, sound, sculpture, writing, and puppetry. In 2019 he founded the Rainbow of Wounded Insects Theater (RWI): an ever-expanding puppet play that explores the intersections of ontology, psychoanalysis, and religion.

Bio-Glitz 
BioGlitz unique biodegradable glitter and fashion line and formula that connects us all through shine and respect for nature. We believe environmental consciousness drives self-decor! Our mission is to knock down boundaries, preconceived notions of normality, and fuel acceptance with a dash of color.

HAIKU GUYS AND GALS

Haiku Guys & Gals are stylish poets who perform at parties.  Guests give them topics and receive a personalized Free Haiku.  It's like a photo booth for your soul.

We discovered that writing Free Haiku for people brings them joy.  Turns out, most folks are generally willing to share a small fact about themselves and wait 30-90 seconds for a complete stranger to capture the moment with a haiku.  Upon receipt, they laugh, cry, hug us, tell their friends to come over, tattoo their haiku on their bodies (yes, we have like six so far), frame it, put it on their wall/mirror/fridge/bedstand, and the list goes on.

Brooklyn based Rosa 'Bluestone Babe' Perr returns to The Other Art Fair Brooklyn this November tattooing her beautiful and unique designs onto visitors on a first come, first serve basis.

Rosa is a New York City native raised by artists, teachers, and activists. Bluestone, Rosa’s mother’s last name, is an ode to her maternal family and the feminism her mother instilled in her from a young age. Rosa loves sharing the intimate tattoo experience with clients, in particular the joy and confidence new ink can bring. Rosa has been painting since she was a tot, and the transition from paintbrush to a needle in recent years felt natural. She has fallen in love with the art of handpoke tattoos and evokes a less-is-more aesthetic. When not tattooing, you can find Rosa at or dreaming about the beach.
