A gif by Reed + Rader.
last couple of weeks in Bushwick were busy…The entire neighborhood, like a beehive, was getting ready for the biggest Bushwick weekend of the year, Bushwick Open Studios. BOS is held annually every first weekend in June, and this year’s edition was the biggest, attracted the most people and SO MUCH press.
My baby, curatorial project and an online gallery BushwickGallery.com couldn’t miss this festivities naturally, and so I curated an art show playing with New Aesthetic concept. I invited 9 amazing artists: Man Bartlett, Jerstin Crosby, Ryan Ford, James George, Brad Henderson, Carmen von K, Alexander Porter, and Reed + Rader – the best there is, I think 🙂
In the spirit of the slogan of the show: “Easy breezy, just like ordering pizza online… ” the show was commenting on ‘New Aesthetic,’ a brand new term, which refers to the increasing appearance of the visual language of digital technology and the Internet in the physical world.
The show has been held at The Active Space where I returned after I curated there my first show Tuesday People for the last year’s BOS.
The show was fantastic, the artists are insanely great, we got a bunch of press, we had free delicious pizza from Verde Coal Oven in Bushwick, and jojoSoul spinning some cool chill tones.
Looking forward to cur8 more stuff! 🙂
