Curator Charles Wilkin has put together a show of collage at Picture Farm in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The show, presented by Ugly Art Room, opened last Friday and made me wonder how the art form might be different today in contrast to its origins in the early 20th C. I spoke to the curator about contemporary collage.
As part of the Williamsburg Walks and this weekend’s Northside Festival, our favorite north Brooklyn migrating gallery, the Ugly Art Room, set up shop on Bedford Ave with what they are calling Opening Rejection.
I’ve already expressed my affection for apartment shows but hallway — or landing, to be more precise — shows I’ve been mum about … until now. This past weekend curator Martin Esteves pulled off a smart, small pop-up exhibition on a friend’s landing on Dupont Street in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
