We’ve brought you posts about which spaces you probably haven’t heard of yet, musings from the 2011 Bushwick Open Studios and a even useful guide to the best bar and gallery pairings in the neighborhood, to name just a few.
In the last few years, nonprofits like Momenta Art and Nurture Art also made recent moves to Bushwick, galleries like Interstate Projects have emerged and more artists have moved into the area and in the process solidifying the area as a hub for emerging artists.
This Thursday, Hyperallergic editor, Hrag Vartanian, who is no stranger to Bushwick, broadens the discussion as he moderates the “Confronting Bushwick: A Discussion on the Nature and Future of the Bushwick Art Scene” panel at Bushwick’s Bogart Salon, one of the galleries in the burgeoning 56 Bogart Street art building.

Guests panelists include Deborah Brown, artist and owner of StorefrontBushwick gallery, Thomas Burr Dodd, owner of Brooklyn Fireproof, culture writer Carolina A. Miranda of C-Monster fame and Marco Antonini, the gallery director of Nurture Art.
