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.

  • 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.
