Invisible Dog Gallery Presents Interesting Assortment of Steampunk-like Objects

We're usually bored stiff at galleries, but the Invisible Dog Art Center at 51 Bergen Street in Boerum Hill is showing an intriguing collection.  It looks more like an altered antique shop than a gallery with steel Buddhas set in from of static TVs, mannequins in gas masks, and a pictures of Indians holding a superimposed bottle of Chanel perfume.  The pieces are laden with messages, often comical. Among the groupings of flight goggle-wearing doll heads, it's difficult to determine which is a piece, but the theme typically relates to corporate greed permeating all aspects of life and art. Regardless of your politics, it's a marvelous assortment of poignantly arranged objects.
