Peres Projects provides more information about the event:
-We thought it would be important and helpful to have an open memorial exhibition for Dash’s community in New York City. We are asking Dash’s community of friends to participate in an exhibition that would include photographs or video of Dash; works of art made for Dash or in memory of him; a small group of works by Dash in various media (just for exhibition); and an open wall where friends or admirers from the general public could write, paint, or paste something up on the wall. The outside of the gallery will feature a large recreation by his friends of his tag. We anticipate opening to the public as early as Tuesday, July 21 at the 76 Grand Street gallery of Deitch Projects. The show would remain on view through mid-August. If you would like to participate in this exhibition by lending or creating artworks, please contact Kathy Grayson at Deitch Projects: 212 343 7300, firstname.lastname@example.org. We ask artists/friends who want to participate to bring artworks by the gallery beginning this Saturday, July 18th through Monday July 20th to begin installation that Tuesday. Artists are welcome to bring additional works anytime, however, that can be installed during the run of the show as well. All are welcome. Please pass this on to people you think would like to know about it.

The homie Jun Sugai’s bike got stolen last night… He thought a chain + Kryptonite pad on the rear wheel was the best way to keep it safe, but it wasn’t good enough… Someone must have had their eye on it and seized the opportunity… So, if you get your eye on them; seize the opportunity to let us know it’s where-abouts. Pleeeeeese! Just holler at the store (212.253.0588 tell anyone) or at the number stated above 917.292.0899. Good looks.
Combine three amazing brands… the Ace Hotel, Generic Surplus and Arkitip, and what do you get? A versatile pair a shoes that has a cotton mesh upper that’s breathable, quick drying and non-slip sole for wearing around the pool accompanied by a matching tote. The 3 brands decided to work together on creating a shoe that captures “the essence of Palm Springs and the eclectic style of the (Ace) hotel grounds.” In all its an artistic functional comfortable pair of kicks. What else could you ask for? A matching tote you say. Well, like i said before… it’s accompanied by none other than a matching one! Holler.
