A little more than a month ago, the music world suffered the devastating loss of GWAR frontman Oderus Urungus (a.k.a. Dave Brockie). The famed performer was
50 years old 43 billions years old at the time of his death.
Yesterday, Free Williamsburg reported that this Saturday, May 3, Boerum Hill’s MF Gallery (213 Bond St.), will celebrate the late Urungus’ life by hosting a memorial art show dedicated to the legendary performer. Sales from the exhibit will directly benefit The Dave Brockie Foundation in its continued efforts to promote “the advancement of music, images, letters and performances in the arts.”
According to MF’s website, the gallery had a longstanding relationship with Brockie and collaborated with him on a solo show in 2004, GWAR’s Crack-a-Thon in 2010 and 2011, and a number of group shows over the last 10 years.
Now, they’ve recruited nearly 100 artists to pay tribute to Brockie/Urungus through a variety of mediums. All work will be available for purchase at the opening night party’s “Cash & Carry” sale and on display at the gallery through June 3.
The party kicks off at 7 p.m. and will rage on until 10 p.m. All ages are welcome.
