With Bushwick Open Studios a mere 10 days away, many galleries are preparing for openings set for that wild weekend. But as we all know, Bushwick never sleeps and never takes a break from art happenings. Here’s a handful of creative events happening in the next couple of days…
Art to your life is like chocolate bunny to your Easter. It is not advised to go without art for too long. Get your dose of artful Bushwick every week! New exhibitions in Bushwick usually open rain or shine on Fridays and Saturdays; ongoing shows can be seen during gallery hours that by average fall on weekends 1-6PM. This week, we are excited for life-sized portraits, photographs and lots of new media art!
The long version Bushwick Open Studios 2012. The world has changed in a generative way and they are on the forefront of defining a new American culture.
By Sean Alday
I think I’m going to write a story about how the common thread tying the show together was ‘ego.’
An artist without an ego is a corpse.
The thing that struck me as I wandered from place to place during Bushwick Open Studios was the field day Freudian psychologists would have with the percolating ego in every direction. Some obvious, some subtle, some well-intentioned, some well-executed and some none of the above.
Let’s start with the low hanging fruit as many of us are still holding on to our printed maps. It was large, as Jason Andrew pointed out it was almost the size of the New York Times. There were over 500 studios and galleries this weekend.
“The size is warranted.”
That was my first thought. Until I looked inside.
Something had gone awry with the design. The first page made sense, even if it was a tad sloppy. My only critique would be to have limited the existing text to one page. Following that were two pages filled with what looked like a whole bunch of nothing, two full pages promoting “Seeking Spaces” and several pages of promotion.
Finally a map appears. This is what many will see first when they arrive off of the L train at the Morgan Stop and it’s telling them that four air-conditioned stops ago is where the weekend began. Except for many of them the weekend began at No Name. Which is to say 56 Bogart.
After you make your way into the building a smorgasbord of art madness ensues. Everyone is talking about everything. There are four floors and a basement. You kind of want to take your clothes off. The galleries on the first floor stop you from going through with it. But you kind of want to all weekend. The older gallery directors are wiry and spry. You can feel them reflecting a lot of energy, they are usually artists themselves. The younger gallery directors are bursting with similar energy. The world has changed in a generative way and they are all on the forefront of defining a new American culture.
Peter Hopkins is filming a Bollywood Soap Opera with several of Emtee’s alter egos. Brendan Carney is considering his printmaking business with you. Marco Antonini will talk you through NURTUREart’s maze of videos. John Holt will draw you to C.C.C.P. by both of you haven taken a chance. Nathaniel Lieb will explain that life is fairly simple to complicate.
Once you’ve talked to a few people and get a sense of where to go, you may have spent two to three hours in 56 Bogart. So you might wander down to 117 Grattan where Austin Thomas had curated a show in Sharon Butler’s new studio. Good pieces by Larry Greenberg were found here. I spoke with a friend for a few moments and then wandered around the room, three drawings of incense smoke stood out for the artist’s choice of color. Next to her studio was Jae Song showing dual projections of a conversation between reflections. A building with open spaces on each floor, this will become de rigueur for your explorations.
Next stop seems to be Brooklyn Fireproof. Off the top of my head Holly Shen Claves, Matthew Brennan, Sarah Nelson Wright and Gili Levy were hosting people. The bar was ready for happy hour and the chefs were preparing to enter their zone.
The serendipity of curiosity worked well this weekend. If you’ve stepped into the unexpected places on your route then you’re starting to get a sense of how many artists are in this neighborhood. If you think about how much energy is going in to every single thing to make this happen, the map fades away and you are on your way.
You arrive at The Active Space on 566 Johnson. First of all there is the gallery itself. Deborah Brown made a huge leap in the past year. It felt like the world she painted became less romantic and more urgent. The landscapes matured in the right way and devolved in sublime manners. Looking at the card table makes you realize that her projects are all over. Remember to congratulate Ashley Zelinskie on her curation of this excellent show.
Katarina Hybenova is exhibiting the “Vegan Pizza Party” and the title piece is like a sculpture of a flashing .gif file. Turn around James George has taken pictures of the way a computer might see you. The studios around are fun and full of different kinds of approaches to art from J.R. Larson’s wooden bones on canvas to Cathy Choi’s tasteful resin on canvas works. This building is sunny and the name reflects what it feels like.
There’s the Onderdonk House up the road on Flushing. The Sculpture Garden show is in the expansive backyard. You can get a view of the skyline from the top of the hill and remember that you’re in New York City. There’s a home at the bottom of the hill built in 1709 where a band called Pass Kontrol is the real live session band for an ensemble of performances that can include you.
Head to 1717 Troutman for a wild session of studio hopping. Glass portraits, video, music, and paintings to say the least. Don’t forget to swing into galleries Parallel Art Space and Regina Rex. It was my first time in the building and I felt it. There was good energy touched with enough anarchy and bohemianism to keep the galleries from resting on their laurels. By the way, I’ve seen Rob de Oude’s small works before, but I was blown away by the large pieces in his and Enrico Gomez’s shared studio. There was a wall showcasing the evolution of the simultaneously-linear-and-swirling pieces.
From there I went to Wyckoff Avenue. If you’re hungry there are two good options: wait for a table at the Northeast Kingdom or wait at the tortilla factory and restaurant. Afterwards, it may be time for an iced coffee. Just to top off the great weather (including the quick rain shower on Sunday) stop by the Wyckoff Starr where Paul Rome and Roarke Menzies were set up on the sidewalk doling out coffee and water. If you go inside have a Grasshopper.
There is a studio belonging to an interesting artist named Myles Bennett. His painted canvases hung like shawls without a mannequin. This place reminded me of why it’s good to talk to the artist. He made these pieces to be worn, there was a look book, and there were canvases stitched into abstract figures of what it would look like to wear them.
Down to Norte Maar for original collages of Pass Kontrol posters by Oliver Ralli. Two that stuck out were a Warhol and Basquiat imagined conversation and a “Cut a hit record with Pass Kontrol” flier from Bushwick Open Studios past.
When I wasn’t running around I was around the corner at my space 950 Hart Gallery for our final gallery exhibition. We made a lot of new friends, sold some prints and wrote the showing artist’s names on the wall.
Down to Starr Street and stop at quite a few places along the way. The first stop was the huge warehouse with Julie Torres’s cooperative show ALLTOGETHERNOW and another several rooms of art. I could not figure out who was behind each room but there was always something around the corner. Mind your eyes and loose clothing; sculptures are coming out of the wall. From there it was off to the building that houses the Bushwick Starr. A collective that showed work featuring Christina De Roos and sculptures made with tenacity out of milk cartons and canvas. I even spotted a former roommate in one of the photographs. I recognized him looking right at home naked in the midst of a throng of moving people.
I stopped at Olivia Swisher’s home. She stood at the refrigerator with the door wide open when I walked in. I was puzzled. She offered me a beer and a series of poems by Chiara Di Lello written on eggs and milk cartons and packages of butter. I read everything in her fridge.
On Bushwick Basel, that was a name game and many people fell for it hook, line and sinker. But let me say that I enjoyed visiting NURTUREart, AIRPLANE, Studio 10, and Storefront Bushwick’s booth in that order. Norte Maar’s booth had a collage that summed up everything that I felt: “I am having such a good summer.”
Up to Wilson, past Miles and Cain’s Tavern. Two drinking spots with unique flavors that both appeal to me. I stopped at Storefront Bushwick to see what was happening. In the project space I saw celestial patterns by Paula Overbay and two new pieces by Matthew Mahler. This made me reflective as one of his older, angular pieces hung in my gallery. He is cornering his style, this is a part of the artist’s hunt.
From there I went to the arena that spoke to me more than anything else this weekend. It began in English Kills. First of all, Chris Harding puts on some of the best new exhibitions in this city. This show was no exception. David Pappaceno’s sculptures were arranged to give you a center of gravity and the bases were excellently arranged. The wall was a mind warp of colorful patterns and frames enclosing drawings similar to the sculptures. And don’t miss the paintings in the next room. Influences that are maturing shine through the originality of the compositions.
Across the street Don Pablo Pedro sat cross legged and conducted a court of Bacchus. His work is quite good. I hope that you didn’t miss the Dirty Little Cunt.
Next door I found myself in awe of Jim Herbert’s enormous paintings. I climbed to the second level for a different perspective. I can’t wait to see what he unveils for the next solo show. These pieces need light and their own company.
From there you’ll stroll up to Bush Gardens for a view of Centotto’s “Charting the Not” curated by Paul D’Agostino. Here you’ll run into Austin Thomas’s work and Gili Levy’s for the fourth or fifth time. Next door is Tim Kent’s studio. There was a piece entitled “Leviathan” made with charcoal and paper that I had been wanting to see for a long time. This studio did not disappoint. It’s hard to appreciate the masterful technique of his paintings of European Homes online. It’s instant gratification in person.
After all of that, I was a bit tired and went home to nurse a whiskey bottle and feel good about the world.
If the trend continues I’ll have to be fitter than Jason Andrew and his dog combined to see everything next year. In the meantime I’m keeping my eye on you Bushwick. Stay classy.

We are taking it by subway stops. That was a decision when wondering how we could possibly write a guide to Bushwick Open Studios 2012. Over 540 participating locations aren’t easy to cover. Here is what we won’t miss off the Morgan L stop:
#1 The Bogart Salon: Isha A Tell All Tale
You can either hate or love the 56 Bogart building filled up to the edge with galleries and studios, but you certainly can’t miss it when strolling through BOS2012 participating art spaces. We promise an unlikely art and cultural experience at The Bogart Salon. Meenakshi Thirukode, Peter Hopkins and the crew will be filming a Bollywood style soap opera about the art world and the perils of a young woman, right there on the set in the gallery.
#2 Robert Henry Contemporary
Robert Henry Comtemporary is a brand new gallery at 56 Bogart. When in the building go check out their inaugural show Centuries of Noon by Andrew Zarou. (Wink wink – keep your eye on Andrew Zarou. We predict some sparkles and stars shooting around him…)
#3 Carol Salmanson Studio
Carol Salmanson is a truly interesting artist who likes to use light, glass and electricity in her work. Her studio happens to be in 56 Bogart building, so check out her work.
On the 3rd floor of 56 Bogart building, visit CRE8. CRE8 features visual art from resident artists, Modesto Flako Jimenez among other. Modesto is a Bushwick-raised poet and cabbie in his spare time. This super-smart and super-talkative guy talks about gentrification in his art. He created a documentary to be featured during BOS that everyone should see!
#5 This Is So Fucking Temporary
There is a lot going on at McKibbin lofts as well. Make sure you don’t miss Daniel Greer’s surrealistic posters, large scale drawings, music and readings on Friday and Saturday nights.
Take a quiet moment from BOS insanity and visit Centotto, Paul D’Agostino’s apartment gallery across the street from Roberta’s. Paul has prepared an exhibition that looks really beautiful and features Austin Thomas, Meg Lipke, Josh Willis, Gili Levy, Cecco Angiolieri, and Charting the Not.
#7 Rafael Fuchs Studio

One of the very new galleries and art spaces in Bushwick, The Living Gallery, is located in The Loom. Nyssa Frank is hosting photographer Meryl Meisler who collaborated with writer Vanessa Martir. Defying Devastation will be an exhibition that is an absolute must if you’re interested in Bushwick and its history. Vanessa Martir grew up in the streets of Bushwick in the ’80s when Meryl Meisler used to take photos in the streets. As it turns out, Meryl took a picture of Vanessa as a child playing in the street, and Vanessa learned about the existence of this picture through Bushwick Daily. We will bring more on this fascinating encounter on Bushwick Daily soon.
#13 Storefront Bushwick
All-time favorite gallery in a storefront on Wilson Ave, Storefront Bushwick will bring works by Abdolreza Aminlari and a sculpture by Drew Shiflett. Abdolreza is a an artist of Iranian origin explores ideas of cultural memory and identity, specifically the idea of “home” in relation to the Iranian Diaspora.
#14 Two Coats of Paint
The founder of the blog Two Coats of Paint, painter Sharon Butler has recently moved her studio to Bushwick. Additionally, she invited Austin Thomas of Pocket Utopia to curate a painting show there for BOS.
#15 Truck Yeah
Truck Yeah Meet Up is a very cool project whose goal is to transform any location into a creative gathering. Visit Pine Box Rock Shop on Saturday and Sunday and have fun!
Have you noticed that Bushwick has been suspiciously silent lately? That’s because the neighborhood is bracing itself for the biggest event of the year. Yes, Bushwick is gearing up for the annual Pigeon Flight Parade on the first weekend on June! The pigeon keepers from all over Bushwick will meet at Maria Hernandez Park, with their pigeon flocks on a leash early morning on June 1. They will release their pigeons from the leash with an uneasy task: to fly around the planet Earth and bring back artifacts from every continent. The first flock to return wins the eternal glory!*
However, despite the glorious Pigeon Flight Parade being in preparation, some brave Bushwickians set themselves to organize awesome events for us even this week. Here is 5 coolest ones!
With all the DIY charm that belongs to an apartment gallery, luckily still not forgotten in Bushwick, Centotto’s founder Paul D’Agostino will open the doors to his home, gallery and heart in a friendly manner, nonchalantly presenting his curatorial mastery. Charting the Nod will feature 4 brilliant artists: Austin Thomas, Meg Lipke, Josh Willis and Gili Levy, and will remain open also for the subsequent weekend of Pigeon Flight Parade.
It’s Memorial Day weekend, and the weather looks promising! David Teller of BirdDog who is getting ready to open his very own music venue off Mogan L stop, is throwing an amazing rooftop party with bands (Not Blood, Paint; Monogold, and more), booze and kiddie pools. Sounds terrific? It will sound even better when we tell you it’s free!
Secret Project Robot is one of the coolest venues in Bushwick, and we love it’s quirkiness and DIYness. On Saturday they are inviting you to their outdoor yard party with bands (Call of the Wild; Animals; Black Dice), BBQ and watermelon drinks.
Microscope similarly like Centotto belongs to the good kids who are ready for Pigeon Fly Parade already one week before and are inviting you to escape the madness and simply enjoy their opening. The exhibition will feature Polaroids by Emma Bee Bernstein (curated by Phong Bui). And we simply want to see them!
Shea Stadium is organizing many concerts, which is making the entire Bushwick very happy. On Friday they will present something exceptionally good. Amen Dunes, Gary War, Highlife and Woodman will play to make you jump and tune in to the Memorial Weekend atmosphere. $8 will get you in!
*It’s a total lie Bushwick is gearing up for Bushwick Open Studios!!
Every new week in Bushwick is a reason to celebrate: we have a bunch of awesome events organized by creative Bushwick folks coming up. But before we walk you through the five of them we like the most this week, please enjoy the opportunity to listen to this this one-man a cappella multitrack version of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme song….
On Wednesday night, a Bushwick non-profit organization based in 56 Bogart building, NURTUREart, will be screening some classics to accompany the current art exhibition Argo of Anna Carossa. The 1963 film Jason and the Argonauts was directed by Don Chaffey. Don’t miss this cult film based on Greek mythology and the ’60s special effects. Moreover, the admission is free!
So @KaileeAyyar told us on Twitter that she just moved to the neighborhood and asked us about the first thing she should do. And we said go to Centotto on Friday! Centotto, my dear friends, is a legendary apartment gallery run by Paul D’Agostino, a sophisticated curator who like likes to explore interesting concepts, usually following from a piece of good reading. This Friday, Centotto will open an art show consisting of 12 men exploring the beasts within.
While on Moore Street for Centotto opening, check out another great loft right in the building next door, Paper Swan Loft. Paper Swan Loft belongs to the collective of musicians, filmmakers and artists from Bushwick,who are, this Friday night, hosting poets Matthew Zingg, Gina Mobilio, Mike Lala, Julie Kantor. The nights at Paper Swan Loft are always a really really pleasant experience, after which you won’t be able to hide a (rather silly) smile on your face for days. Aaah…
Bushwick Open Studios 2012 mixer no. 2 will be held at popular coffee shop Little Skips this Thursday! The most compelling reasons why you should attend are: 1) you need to attend at least one of the mixers to receive a registration code for your studio participation at BOS; 2) BOS mixers are always FUN!; 3) Little Skips is undergoing an interesting reconstruction and is being turned into even cuter place it already is.
Cafe Ghia opened only one year ago, but instantly became one of the most popular spots in the neighborhood. Delicious food, great selction of wine and beer, friendly staff- all that participated to the fact that Bushwick loves Ghia, and we won’t miss their birthday party!
Complete event listings for this week can be found here.

We will tell you right from the start: To Beat! Big things are being prepared in our beloved home sweet Bushwick. There will be so much art, you might easily overdose on it. And nobody, and I mean nobody, will escape!
While in the city thousands of art lovers will head over to the art fairs of Armory Week, Brooklyn is not falling behind. During Brooklyn Armory Night on Saturday almost every gallery in the borough will stay open late. In Bushwick, 15 galleries and art spaces will be participating in the biannual late night gallery walk, Beat Nite! This is the 7th Beat Nite in the history of Bushwick, and as 7 is a lucky number, this week’s Beat Nite is bound to be absolutely rad. We advise you to take friends, and maybe ride a bike, because you don’t want to miss awesome art spaces in Ridgwood. So join the crowds walking the streets of Bushwick and enjoy the overload of art!
In case you were getting overwhelmed, let us tell you what is what, and what to expect where!!
We are excited to see so many brand new galleries on the Beat Nite’s line up! Art is blooming, and it’s not only galleries from the city and Williamsburg coming in. Check out:
The converted feather factory at 566 Johnson Ave isn’t new, but they have a new huge gallery! Check out the new awesome space and a solo show of street artist Criminy Johnson (aka QRST) Dreaming Without Sleeping.
Art on Fire is a new art space of artist Sheryl Denbo. We are excited to check it out!
Is also oh so new. Look at their Group Show No. 1.
Camel Art Space is counting its last days at its location on Metropolitan Ave, only to officially open their new space at 1717 Troutman with a new secret name… Go check out First Truth and Yuka Otani in the project space.
Naturally, head to probably the most well-known apartment gallery in Bushwick! Paul D’Agostino will give you a tour of his current simposio Courtesy Roman Abramovich: The First Unveiling.
Guys at 950 Hart regularly turn their loft not only into a great gallery, but also into a great party spot with a cocktail bar. Seriously. Don’t miss this friendly bunch, and their exploration of figurative art Go Figure. (Sneak Peak: This show contains work of Bushwick Daily’s Maria Gotay!!)
Now we will all agree that to miss the apartment gallery of Jason Andrew who organizes Beat Nite would be a sin! Norte Maar will feature a solo show of Tamara Gonzales: Untitled, an exhibition of new paintings. In the project room you can check out a new sketchbook by Austin Thomas and recent sculpture by Kevin Curran. Sounds dandy!
Off the J train, right behind Little Skips, on the shortest Bushwick street, Charles Pl. is a great gallery of Elle Burchill and Andrea Monti. These guys are all about film and currently are presenting a series of films We Are Cinema, 50 Years of Fimmakers’ Coop.
Great show is promised at AIPLANE. Mirror, Mirror is a conceptual group show, which will address the phenomena of anticipation of 2012 Hollywood movie releases, with each artist taking on the film of their choice to generate a piece from.
If we say it’s worth it to make it all the way to Ridgewood, we mean it! Go check out Hypercolor, an excellent hyperly colored art show at Small Black Door, a basement gallery of Matthew Mahler and Jonathan Terranova.
If you haven’t seen Golem of Ridgewood, the film from 1940s discovered in a house at Seneca, go pay a visit to Fred Valentine on Saturday.
Cojo, who runs ArtSucks.com blog, undertook an ambitious project to feature 27 artists from the area in his apartment space. Sounds like you shouldn’t miss this one either…
Two galleries from the gallery arcade building off Morgan L stop are taking part in Beat Nite. Check out Studio 10 and a newly opened Theodore Art.
ISCP is a home to many foreign artists in residency in New York. Get a flavor of what’s being made at this cosmopolitan place and pay them a visit on Saturday.
Definitely one of the best galleries in Bushwick operates under careful eye of artist Deborah Brown. On Saturday go check out Martin Bromirski, Rachel LaBine, and Elizabeth Riley, and don’t miss the new sign created for Storefront by Skewville.
Have you been to Botanic yet? This space on Wycoff Ave had opened a couple of months ago, and its size and type reminds us a little bit of Storefront Bushwick. The Commons, the show the space is opening on Saturday, looks really awesome. Sarah Butler will be marking the glass window of the gallery, and transcribing text from the local graffiti and intertwining it with notional annotations from her personal experience. Another artist in the show Julie Trembley, has transformed the gallery into an artificial green space that is saturated with vibrant grass, bright sun, and an unlikely perch from which viewers are encouraged to take it all in….
Factory Fresh, Bushwick’s street art gallery is always fun to go to. On Saturday, you can check out the birthday show of the twin brothers duo, Skewville. Moreover, Bushwick Daily’s Jojo Soul will be DJing there – and those who know Jojo also know that you will dance like a crazy animal, and potentially have the best time of your life while at it.
English Kills should be your last stop, because that’s where the official after party is! Also take a look at the Permanent Collection 2 that is being exhibited, and features some of the coolest artists ever shown at English Kills like Tescia Seufferlein and Don Pablo Pedro.

View Weekend Art Map in a full screen map
Did you wake up this morning in panic looking at all the art opening invitations wondering How? When? So many? I personally did, but on the second thought I realized that there everything can be done with a proper planning. That’s why I prepared Weekend Art Map marking down the locations of all the Friday and Saturday art openings in Bushwick and Ridgewood. I hope that this Weekend Art Map will be a valuable tool when trying to locate and see all the art.
Here is also a small description of art happenings in the area. Good luck!
I am really excited for what is prepared for early Friday night in Ridgewood. The exhibition at Valentine commemorates a film made over 70 years ago on Cornelia Street in Ridgewood. In 2002 artists Jude Tallichet and Matt Freedman bought a building at Cornelia Street and turned it into a studio and living space. While exploring their new property and neighborhood, they discovered the half-degraded film, which documents the efforts of Rabbi Jacob Weiss to build a golem, a supernatural being made of animated clay, to protect his congregation from their anti- Semitic neighbors in the early 1940s.
On Friday, the long awaited and discussed inaugural exhibition of Luhring Augustine is being held in Bushwick. The “gorilla” of the art world originally claimed to had bought only a storage space in Bushwick. However, even Luhring Augustine couldn’t resist the growing hype of Bushwick and its Knickerbocker location will serve as an exhibition space as well. On Friday night, they will present The Illusion of Democracy, a solo exhibition of the American film and video artist Charles Atlas. I personally want to see it…
Openings at 56 Bogart St.
It is qiute convenient that the galleries located in the building at 56 Bogart coordinate their openings. You can go once, and see three and more exhibitions at the same time. This is what’s going on there on Friday night;
- # 3 NURTUREart: Systematic Risk 7-9PM
- #4 Studio 10: Sentinel 7:30-9:30PM
- # 5 Agape Enterprise: SAPC Opens in Bushwick! 7-10PM
The Parlour is a brand new gallery located at Bushwick Ave, and Group Show #1 is their very 1st exhibition. If you’re as curious as me, you’ll head there early, because Saturday will be really busy.
Microscope Gallery presents a series of events in connection with the 50th anniversary of Film-Makers’ Cooperative. On Saturday, a legendary filmmaker Ken Jacobs will present some of his early works; as well as and his recent anaglyph 3D video. The event is $6 (Ken Jacobs will be present at the screening).
One of our absolutely favorite new galleries in the area, Small Black Door, is having an opening of a hyper-colorful group show presenting some of the most hip artists in the area (Liz Atzberger, Joe Ballweg, Saira McLaren, Ziad Naccache, Douglas Einar Olsen, Jamie Powell and Eric Sall). A part of the night will belong to a collaborative performance by artists Lydia Ainsworth and Lara Gemmiti.
Legendary loft gallery of Paul D’Agostino will present another of its simposio exhibitions. Simposio means that artists not only show, but also give short talks about their art work.
You might be a little startled here. Fitness studio? Art show? Drawing? Music? And my answer is YES! Why? Because this is Bushwick…. Prepared by 950 Hart Gallery, I am positive the night will be fun! Expect a pop up art show from 950 Hart’s roster of artists, life drawing with exotic costumed models and live music. All until the sunrise, it seems
Thanks to Jason Andrew for this art map idea!

It is my pleasure to state that there are so many amazing galleries in Bushwick, that it’s getting harder and harder to check them all in one night. This time, 12 galleries and art spaces participated. Some of them were brand new (Airplane), others were still pretty fresh (Small Black Door), while some are good ol’ awesome Bushwick spots (Centotto). Take a look at our photo essay, mapping the best moments of the night!
