“Hang Night” with The Dead Zone Collective


The Dead Zone Collective (DZC) is a coalition of Buffalo creatives, outside of the established art communities. Similar to what the Infringers do for the rogue art community, the DZC offers up DIY venues and events, where everyone is invited to show… and show off their works of art. This coming Saturday, DZC is hosting an event called “Hang Night”, where artists are invited to participate by simply bringing a work of art to hang.

“The general idea with hang night is that anyone can bring a single piece of work and hang it on a wall for a night. Because of space constraints it is limited to one piece of art per person and unfortunately it would be for the night only. It would be awesome to have a place where we could have everyone’s work up for a week or a month but we are just starting out as an art collective so it’s not feasible as of now. However if this goes well we would like to do multiple hang nights, so who knows. We supply binder clips (a sort of DIY method for hanging work that isn’t framed) and hammers and nails.” – DZC
