As part of Lance Armstrongâ€™s STAGES art show at Deitch Projects, a bike community center, WNW Space, has taken over Trackstar. Before it turns back to a track bike shop this weekend, the space will host a discussion and demonstration about stealing bikes.
Led by artist Tom Sachs, creator of â€œLanceâ€™s Tequila Bike for Girls,â€ the talk will cover â€œthe ethical implications around the use and re-use of stolen and liberated bike parts,” followed by by â€œa guided tour of the neighborhoodâ€™s abandoned and dismembered bikes,â€ where the â€œdemonstrationâ€ likely takes place. If you donâ€™t make it out, all you really need to know is: â€œDonâ€™t steal bikes, bro.â€ |Trackstar|
â€œTom Sachs: Stolen Bikes. An Ethical Discussion & Demonstration,â€ November 20th, 7 PM, WNW Space, 232 Eldridge Street
