Crossing Brooklyn

Curators of Contemporary Art Eugenie Tsai, John, and Barbara Vogelstein, and assistant Curator, Rujeko Hockley are the organizers for the exhibition Crossing Brooklyn. They are showcasing Art from Bushwick, Bed-Stuy, and Beyond.

 The exhibit started on October 3, 2014, and will continue to display through January 4, 2015. It features work in a variety of mediums ranging from paintings to performance. The exhibit’s title was inspired by the poem” Crossing Brooklyn Ferry,” written by Brooklyn’s own Walt Whitman.

The organizers visited more than 100 studios throughout Brooklyn to determine what would be included in the exhibition.

I especially love that they chose to display artists from varying career levels. And are featuring work that represents the diversity of Brooklyn’s artists. While the exhibition will take place at the Brooklyn Museum, there will also be an off-site feature in the street and other public Brooklyn spaces.
