This weekend, Manhattan was bombarded with contemporary art: in addition to The Armory Show, we had SCOPE, Volta, Spring/Break, Art on Paper, and NADA (and probably others I’ve forgotten). Greenpointers staff were able to attend most of them, and we wanted to give a shoutout to our local artists and galleries who participated! You all are awesome.
Here’s the lowdown:
- Local vintage shop Dusty Rose Vintage (251 Greenpoint Ave.) collaborated with Noah Scalin at Spring/Break to create a large fabric portrait of Helen Keller.
- Tattoo artist Tamara Santibanez from Saved (426 Union Ave.) had a striking monochrome installation at Spring/Break, with Castor Gallery.
- Owen James Gallery (61 Greenpoint Ave.) repped Greenpoint at Art on Paper (which showed Greenpoint artist Takuji Hamanaka).
- Calico Gallery (67 West St. #203) popped up at Spring/Break, and showed Greenpoint artist Amanda Browder.
- Christina Papanicolaou and Nicole Grammatico curated “The Pursuit of It” with Bushwick artist Hiba Schahbaz, Greenpoint artist Hein Koh, Robin F Williams, and Signe Pierce at Spring/Break.
- Paul D’Agostino curated a room with artists Lisa Levy and Paul Gagner.
- Greenpoint-based artist Andrea Wolf Yadlin showed Future Past News, a collaborative project with Karolina Ziulkoski that used augmented reality to replace imagery on TV screens. In one example, Stalin on TV became Putin when you held your phone up to it.
