On Saturday, February 2, Gallery Brooklyn in Red Hook, Brooklyn will host the opening for an exciting group exhibition presenting seven finalists for the new ArtCycle Discovers Prize.

Barry Schwabsky, art critic for The Nation and co-editor of international reviews for Artforum, will lead a panel of judges as they select a winner from the seven finalists.

ArtCycle, an online e-commerce site, had an open call in the Fall of 2012 for MFA students and received nearly 100 entries. Seven finalists were chosen to represent the new crop of emerging talent in the city’s MFA programs, and the selected finalists hail from Hunter College, Columbia Univeristy, Parsons The New School of Design, and Pratt Institute.

A group exhibition will be held at Gallery Brooklyn (351 Van Brunt St, Red Hook, Brooklyn) featuring all of the finalists:

  • Jenna Bauer, CUNY Hunter, painting
  • Leo Castaneda, CUNY Hunter, painting
  • Caroline Falby, CUNY Hunter, collage
  • Bing Han, Parsons The New School for Design, painting
  • Mira Hunter, Columbia University, performance/video

  • Shahpour Pouyan, Pratt Institute, painting/video

The winner of the first ArtCycle prize, which will be announced during the show, will be awarded $1,000.

The Discovers Prize group exhibition opens February 2nd, 2013, 6pm* at Gallery Brooklyn (351 Van Brunt St, Red Hook, Brooklyn).
