So much to see, but here’s my short list of things you should most definitely check out today, the last day of Bushwick Open Studios.
Luhring Augustine holds forth, a garrison mirage, on Bushwick’s Knickerbocker Avenue. After several hours of 56 Bogart bohemia, that grey facade, all frosted glass and sleek surveillance, seemed less sinister than inviting, the kind of place a down-to-earth oligarch might pass the time after putting their name down at Roberta’s.
Tonight’s hot weather drew throngs of visitors to the galleries of Bushwick, which kicked off the 2013 Bushwick Open Studios event. Tomorrow, artist studios will be the focus of everyone’s attention, but tonight galleries across the neighborhood attracted hundreds of visitors eager to enjoy the good weather and celebrate the community-wide festival.
The 7th Annual Bushwick Open Studios (BOS) will be the focus of this week’s Art Rx. Stretching out across Bushwick, most of Williamsburg, and neighboring Ridgewood, but strangely still not Bedford Stuyvesant, BOS 2013 will include 604 shows that are impossible to navigate without some help … so that’s where we come in.
Arts in Bushwick, Tumblr, and Hyperallergic have resurrected Walking Into the Dashboard from The World’s First Tumblr Art Symposium for the 2013 Bushwick Open Studios.
Thanks to further largess from the arts community, Pratt Institute’s Flameproof student exhibition will be coming to Bushwick Open Studios on June 1 and 2.
I’ve compiled a list of nine artists I think deserve more attention as some of the rising stars of the Bushwick scene.
I live in Bushwick. I don’t have a hip loft and there are no artisan flea markets, coffee shops or health food stores. Out by the cemetery, in what is technically Bushwick, but is a stone’s throw from Bed-Stuy and East New York, I naively assumed I was a lone outpost of the art world. I couldn’t have been more wrong.
Despite its name, the sprawling weekend (June 1–3) of Bushwick Open Studios actually overtakes the bounds of one neighborhood into the greater North Brooklyn art scene, including some spaces in another borough entirely.

One real estate frontier at a time, the narrative of artist-led gentrification has become naturalized as something close to an economic law. Williamsburg will surely replace Soho as the textbook example in the next edition, and everyone knows that Bushwick is next.
I admit it, sometimes I’m slow to post something. Case in point, my article on the 2011 Bushwick Open Studios was published in the summer edition of the Brooklyn Rail but I never got around the publishing in here. So, here I go. Posting this piece I wrote before summer started right before the season ends. I’ve also uploaded a whole bunch of photos from my tour of the neighborhood.
