Norte Maar reimagines the Beat Nite! For its 13th edition, Beat Nite sets its sights on a different part of Brooklyn, highlighting the artistic community of Gowanus. Beat Nite is the neighborhood-wide, late-night gallery hop recognized for putting Bushwick on the map. Join the throngs of art ponies who will ride out to discover the thriving art scene in Gowanus through a self-guided tour featuring 10 galleries and alternative art spaces.

Beat Nite Gowanus will be held on Friday, October 16, from 6 to 10pm, and is presented in collaboration with Arts Gowanus. This event is held in anticipation of Gowanus Open Studios (Saturday, October 17, and Sunday, October 18). Beat Nite began in 2009 and has continued as a biannual event organized by curator Jason Andrew. (Click here for the map.) The afterparty will happen at Gemini and Scorpio Loft (255 Douglass Street) from 10pm to midnight.

About Beat Nite:
Beat Nite made its debut in February 2009, featuring all of Bushwick’s alternative art spaces and galleries — at the time, only seven. The event grew into a biannual occurrence offering a neighborhood-wide event that many have labeled “half art stroll, half bar crawl.” With over 50 galleries and alternative spaces now in Bushwick and Ridgewood, a special guest curator was invited to select just 10 spaces from the community’s many great offerings beginning in 2012. In the fall of 2015, Norte Maar launched a new initiative with the Beat Nite program to feature other emerging artistic communities in Brooklyn and beyond.
