Crossing Brooklyn

Curators of Contemporary Art, Eugenie Tsai, John, and Barbara Vogelstein along with assistant Curator, Rujeko Hockley are the organizers for the exhibition Crossing Brooklyn “Arts from Bushwick, Bed-Stuy and Beyond.” The exhibit started on October 3, 2014, and will continue to be on display through January 4, 2015, it features work in a variety of medium ranging from paintings to performance. The title of the exhibit was inspired by the poem” Crossing Brooklyn Ferry” written by Brooklyn’s own Walt Whitman.

To decide what they wanted to include in the exhibition, more than 100 studios throughout Brooklyn were visited by the organizers – I especially love that they’ve chosen to display artists from varying career levels and are featuring work representing the diversity of Brooklyn’s artists. While the exhibition will take place at the Brooklyn Museum, there will also be off-site features in the street and other public Brooklyn spaces.
