Ezy Ryders is an ongoing body of work spanning two years about the black motorcycle club culture in New York City. Formal portraits highlight the individuality of the riders, and photographs from bike blessings, trophy parties, and road trips depict the strong community both within the clubs and between clubs from all over the city.
The exhibition is comprised of photographic wheatpastes, large-format black & white prints pasted to exterior walls in two different locations, Steel Horses Motorcycle Club (740 E 98th St, Brooklyn), and Black Falcons Motorcycle Club (523 Bruckner Boulevard, Bronx). The full show can only be viewed the day of the opening, but some photographs will remain on the walls in both locations to weather and fade with the elements. Viewers are encouraged to visit the Bronx to see the photographs pasted up at the Black Falcons Clubhouse, for a joy ride between boroughs similar to ones the clubs make frequently themselves.
This event is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC). This event would not be possible without the Black Falcons MC & the Steel Horses MC- huge thanks.
