With the grand opening of El Barrio’s Artspace PS109 — New York’s newest artist housing initiative — happening this Saturday, we thought it would be a good time to explore the challenges of affordable artist housing in the city.
You can watch tonight’s panel live here.
Earlier this month, the Brooklyn Museum opened Crossing Brooklyn: Art from Bushwick, Bed-Stuy, and Beyond, a survey exhibition featuring 35 Brooklyn-based artists. In order to build upon the show’s themes, Hyperallergic has partnered with the borough’s foremost museum to organize three of our signature ArtTalks on the topics of Alternative Economies, Performance and Activism, and Geography and Place.
We asked attendees to send us responses to our ArtTalk with the Yams in whatever form they liked so we could compile them here, offering a taste of the event in the process.
On Thursday, August 7, Hyperallergic will be hosting our next ArtTalk featuring the Yams Collective — aka HOWDOYOUSAYYAMINAFRICAN? — at their studio in Dumbo, Brooklyn.
On Monday, October 7, Hyperallergic will be hosting our next ArtTalk featuring curator RoseLee Goldberg at The Bedford in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The topic for that evening’s discussion and conversation is, of course, performance art.
On Wednesday, August 21, Hyperallergic will be hosting our next ArtTalk featuring artists AA Bronson and Carlos Motta at The Bedford in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The topic for that evening’s discussion and conversation is “The Body, Spirit, Sex, Community, Magic, and the Other.”
On Monday, a sold-out crowd turned out for our inaugural ArtTalk with Klaus Biesenbach. The event could not have been a more auspicious launch for the #ArtTalk series, with which we hope to host edifying speakers engaged with the world of visual culture in unique and provocative ways.
Announcing an exciting new series, Hyperallergic ArtTalk. Starting Monday, May 20, Hyperallergic will invite a leading voice to spark discussion, debate, and further action about an evolving idea or project that they are passionate about in the world of art. Our inaugural event will feature Klaus Biesenbach, director of MoMA PS1 and chief curator at large at The Museum of Modern Art.
