On Saturday night, Ventiko’s pet peacock, Dexter, was the last to arrive because his Uber driver missed the correct pick-up point — she regularly transports him via Uber, or by subway on a leash. The “WWW III” installations featured outdated Dell computer screens and stairwells laced with discarded electrical cords. Projectors played a mesmerizing preview of a video to be released in full later this week, titled Hungry, of Ventiko devouring a chocolate human-shaped sculpture.
Sylva Dean and Me will perform this Wednesday, July 26, from 7 to 9 p.m. at Socrates Sculpture Park in Long Island City. The full release of Kelsey Brewer’s Hungry will show July 27–29 at Fat Free Art on the Lower East Side. Read More

He sat perched behind the keys while making melodies outside of Unruly Collective's big brick building on Cooper Street. The music kept guests entertained as they waited patiently on the steps to enter the space and witness "www III," a curated show by multimedia artist Ventiko. Read More
