Artist DAIN creates an economic diversion with his take on the 1940s DAIN "COPASETIC" SEPTEMBER 12 - OCTOBER 10 OPENING RECEPTION SEPTEMBER 12, 7-10PM EASTERN (19:00 UK) SPECIAL MUSICAL GUEST: BIG BAND SWING MACHINE . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Brooklyn born artist DAIN uses the platform for his first solo show to take us back to a time when life was simpler---the 1940?s. The good ol? days as some might call them--- New York City Style. A time when words like cosmopolitan, elegant and modest, were a lot more relevant. A time when families spent the day on amusement rides at Coney Island and in the evening common folk mixed with celebrities in nightclubs like the Copacabana. The term ?copasetic? meant that everything was fine and dandy. Even as war news dominated the headlines, a craving for fun and refuge abounded . . . a diversion. Much like today when the economy looms large and America?s still at war, we too need a diversion. DAIN?s work and installations for ?COPASETIC? will create just that. Infusing the glamour and glitz of the 1940?s together with a Brooklyn working class edge, he seeks to turn back the hands of time? Even if we were never there before. Brooklynite Gallery hours are Thursday - Saturday from 1-7pm. Directions to the gallery are A or C subway to Utica Avenue. ### bold word(s)
