DESCRIPTION

Booklyn is pleased to present Working Space, a group exhibition of  works in progress, prototypes, process ephemera and sketches alongside finished artworks.

In May 2018 Booklyn moved into ArtBuilt Brooklyn, a vibrant new arts community at the Brooklyn Army Terminal that houses art studios, art businesses, art galleries and other arts non-profit organizations. Our opening date was pushed back because of construction setbacks, but we have decided to have an exhibition anyway.

We are embracing the delay by adapting new site-specific programming, with an untraditional and experimental inaugural exhibition to introduce our new space during its transitional growth and the surrounding arts community of ArtBuilt Brooklyn. The exhibition theme parallels the surrounding environment, a working studio under construction, by inviting Booklyn artists and studio neighbors to work out and test their ideas in a public setting. The exhibition becomes a workspace for feedback, constructive critique and conversation. The artwork in the show will grow and evolve over the course of one month as artists are encouraged to continue working on their pieces throughout the exhibition.

The opening reception will feature refreshments graciously donated by Interboro Brewery.

The opening of our first exhibition coincides with the Brooklyn Army Terminal Birthday Block Party, celebrating the building’s 100 year anniversary. The block party is free and open to all ages,  and will feature lively musical performances and entertainment, special art exhibits by resident artists of ArtBuilt and ChaShaMa, family-friendly events and activities, a virtual reality exhibition, food from local community vendors, a beer garden, as well as an array of shops curated by BAT tenants.

When: Saturday, September 15th, 11:30-am-8pm.

Where: Brooklyn Army Terminal 140 58th Street, Brooklyn, NY.
