Yesterday, I convinced curators Ali Ha and Jason Andrew to give me a peak at the Surrealism show that opens tonight at Factory Fresh as part of the 2011 Bushwick Open Studios.
Your Guide to This Weekend’s Bushwick Open Studios
The L Train may not be running, but that doesn’t mean we won’t be partying it up at Bushwick Open Studios this coming Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Here are Hyperallergic staff (and intern) picks for the best things to do for the open studio weekend, from artist studio visits to impromptu exhibitions and well-curated gallery show.
From Bushwick Block Party To Street Art Park?
Last Saturday’s All City Block Party at Factory Fresh in Bushwick attracted street art fans and artists to cover the walls of the block-long Vandervoort Place with murals and art work by Brooklyn talents, including Chris Stain, Gaia, Skewville, Imminent Disaster and Tek33 and Dscreet of London’s Burning Candy crew.
Of course, photographer Luna Park has the goods at The Street Spot, and there are some more pics on Juxtapoz via Gaia, but I wanted to talk to Ali Ha, co-founder of Factory Fresh, about the project. I was dying to ask her what exactly is going on with Vandervoort Place and their dream of turning it into a street art park or more specifically an artist-run green space for the community.
