Yo Fight My Mans: Dapwell’s Art Show and Panel Series

For the most part, I wanted to write this post just so I could show you all the above image of a Crown Fried Chicken with a Korn throwie inside a fish tank created by Jacob Reinstein. I stood there for like 20 minutes trying to get my own photo of it with the fish glowing from the UV lights inside, but they were being very uncooperative and my phone is booty.

The piece—and its partner tank containing a character holding a selfie stick beside a guy doing wheat pastings on a wall next to COST—was part of Yo Fight My Mans, an art exhibit and panel series put together by Dapwell of the dissipated Das Racist clan.

The panels are fun and mildly informative–not much shop talk and lots of jokes. There’s one tomorrow about music, featuring Nick Catchdubs, Maluca, and more. Expect to meet a lot of cool, smart people.

If you’re not up for conversation, feel free to climb up into the loft and take a nap in the bed up there, which is its own little exhibit. The loft is supposed to be something like a twisted recreation of Dap’s childhood bedroom, featuring some old TVs showing glitchy video art, a turntable and some dusty records, a bunch of self-help and psychology books, and a gang of prescription pill bottles with labels like “Too Much Future Rekkids,” “Industry Plant,” and “Travis Scott Sux.”

(Dap isn’t an artist, though. In fact, he doesn’t like the word artist. “People are so proud of the word, like it’s this incredible profession that they took on,” he said. “Like they are fucking Doctors Without Borders or something like that.”)

Arcade games are also all over the place, if that’s your thing. One is the show’s namesake, Yo Fight My Mans, a Tekken-like joint by Prashast Thapan. It features digital versions of people you’d probably recognize from around New York throwing hands. The events are being hosted at Baby Castles’s space, an indie gaming collective, which explains the games everywhere.

There’s only three more panels–which means three more chances to see the exhibit–so make sure to pull up to at least one. Follow the Chillin Island Gram for (possible) reminders of the week’s event.
