On the night of Saturday, March 8 all of Bushwick will celebrate as Armory Arts Week suffuses throughout the city and into our artsy enclave. This year John Silvis and Jason Andrew of OUTLET Fine Art have teamed up to charter the first ever bus tour that will bring the Armory-going Manhattanites across the river for the Bushwick/Ridgewood Gallery Tour and Late Night event.
The bus tour originates at The Armory Show across from the piers at West 54th Street and 12th Avenue (Northeast corner) and is anticipated to reach its first stop at TRANSFER at 5:45 pm. Passengers can hop off at any stop from point A to M, and then conquer the rest of the map by foot (RSVP to outletfineartATgmail.com to join at the tour’s origin).
For John Silvis and Jason Andrew this kind of event has been a long time coming and brings with it a neighborhood-wide excitement as all of the galleries included on the tour contributed to its making. Included in the tour are a slew of galleries, including these openings that you won’t want to miss!
Oh, and don’t forget to hashtag your tweets and Instagram photos #BDArmory. We created a custom feed that automatically shows everything you hashtag! Show Bushwick art you see and like during the Armory Week!
The opening of Internet of My Dreams, a solo exhibition from Anthony Antonellis, will mark the one year anniversary of TRANSFER Gallery—what better way to kick off Armory Late Night in Bushwick! (bus stops here at 5:45 pm, opening party begins at 7 pm)
Challenge your brainwaves with this unique series of digital images based on brainwave recordings taken from within a dream. In pure, digital wanderlust, Antonellis shows us both the conscious and unconscious within a set of paintings and moving images.
Amanda Browder ‘RMutt Wedgie’ (Photo courtesy of Storefront Ten Eyck)Storefront Ten Eyck will host an opening for Spitball, a group exhibition playing on comedy within the studio practice and how it translates into art making strategies for each of the featured artists. In crossing categorical boundaries through material and absurdist content, these artists are essentially creating the visual equivalent of what goes into the delivery of everyday humor.
IN PASSING is a one-night event curated by Lauren Wolchik, featuring a film selection by Sara’o Bery. Additional works and films will be on display, accompanied by performances from Butterfly Tree, DonChristian featuring Rahel, Sidney Russell, and Urban Matter.
Genesis Belanger ‘Phase Change’ (Photo courtesy of Outlet Fine Art)Reflect on a classic European tradition at OUTLET Fine Art with the opening of STILL.LIFE, featuring work by five Brooklyn-based artists who contemplate the lineage of this historical context to arrive at new thought-provoking images. Building on the theme of vanitas, the artists reference the historic genre of still life to create compelling contemporary images in reference to the timeless concerns of consumption, vanity and life’s transience.
Sardine presents The Sea-Wolf, a solo exhibition by Jamison Brosseau, featuring Brosseau’s recent paintings in combination with alterations to the gallery.
Andrew Hurst ‘Untitled(Red)’ (Photo courtesy of Norte Maar)Norte Maar will throw a one-night special exhibition of over 30 Bushwick/Ridgewood artists from the personal collection of curator Jason Andrew including works by Paul D’Agostino, Rico Gatson, Cooper Holoweski, Norman Jabaut, Kristen Jensen, Ellen Letcher, Kathy Ann Quinlan, Austin Thomas, Letha Wilson and work for sale by Andrew Hurst, Brooke Moyse, and John Silvis.
