I was happy to make my way to 16 Harrison Place, where Detroit’s Spread Art has turned an empty lot filled with gravel into a makeshift community space and stage.
Wandering the halls of two buildings on Troutman Street on Saturday during Bushwick Open Studios, I was struck by the large number of artists making outstanding sculptures in a broad range of styles and media.
Inside Jihyun Hong’s compact studio, the artist has sheathed a whole room in metallic silver.
Sometime this morning, a painting went missing from English Kills Art Gallery.
The weather’s getting hotter — at least it was last weekend — which can only mean one thing: it’s time for Bushwick Open Studios!
The tenth edition of Bushwick Open Studios (BOS) is just a month away, and it’s hard to believe how much has changed in the Brooklyn neighborhood since 2006.
People’s reactions to Bushwick Open Studios (BOS) generally fall into two passionate camps: those who love the event and those who despise it.
In the late 1970s and early 80s, Meryl Meisler, then a young photographer and self-described club kid, began documenting the bacchanalian nightlife of the city’s most notorious downtown clubs. In the early 80s, as a New York public school teacher, she also started photographing the near-total devastation of Bushwick, Brooklyn, a neighborhood looted, burned, and abandoned by the city and its landlords.
This is it. The city’s biggest annual open studios event, Bushwick Open Studios (BOS), is set to happen this coming weekend, and it would be easy to get lost in the chaos of it all except we’re here to help!
An upstart art fair in the nebulous East Williamsburg/Bushwick region, NEWD, is throwing its hat into the ring during the 2014 Bushwick Open Studios.
This year, we asked the Hyperallergic team to pick a few artists they deemed “worthy to keep your eye on” from their travals across the mega-swathe of Brooklyn and Queens known as Bushwick Open Studios (BOS).
There aren’t as many outskirts to Bushwick Open Studios as there once were. The 2013 edition was brimming even at the very edges of designated “Bushwick,” which really oozes over into the adjacent East Williamsburg and Ridgewood, though it seems steadfast in not stepping over the Broadway line to Bed-Stuy. It was in this area just north of the Broadway border that I set out to explore this past weekend, and where even if it’s only getting more developed, it’s still anchored by some more offbeat places to see and create art. A 48-foot tractor trailer, for one.
