We are underground artists living and/or working in New Brunswick, NJ.
Underground artists who have lived and/or worked in town are also welcome.
If you belong here, email us and join up. The more, the merrier.
2. Why New Brunswick?
New Brunswick is 35 miles south of New York City, and has
proven to be a great lab for experimental art. No one particular
style or school holds sway here. A very wide variety of artists
working in all kinds of forms work and have worked here.
If you're an artist who'd like to have your work on this site, email us:
1. a headshot, a photo of your face, facing the camera, we mean it. 2. a ONE paragraph artist's bio. 3. ONE example of your work or a URL pointing directly to it. 4. a way to contact you in case people in the big wide world go crazy for your stuff.
We understand: the net's full of art poachers. We're not going to steal.
You retain all rights, you artist you.
4. Do you hold any live showcases, shows, or other events?
Poor Impulse Control is not a collective in the classic art collective sense.
We're artists in a town, some of whom have worked together, some
work solo and some have never even met. Even so, poetry readings,
open mics and group shows occur, collaborative work occurs.
You can check the Poor Impulse Control calendar.
We'll have packs of events but we reserve the right to all have a
cool idea at the same time and hide in our studios and attics.
5. The diversity of the artists seems to make it impractical
to allow everyone to be seen, heard, or read in one place.
You bet. You can go from event to event, see artist after artist and
never see stuff that reminds you of anything else. That's how you learn.
That's how you think outside yourself.
6. Where'd the musicians go? We know New Brunswick's full of bass players.
Yep. Those guys are welcome to get connected. We love them,
we support their efforts and watusi at their shows. This is ours.
We'll be updating frequently, so please check back often for
artists new to Poor Impulse Control and for the events calendar.
