Hey Greenpointers! How’s everyone’s New Year’s Resolutions going? Excited for the Super Bowl?
If you’re anything like me, you don’t really have any resolutions (just trying to live my best life) and you absolutely despise the Patriots (Tom Brady is a cheater and a T-supporter), so all the more reason to check out some art this weekend!
On Friday, the Greenpoint Gallery is hosting its first open call group exhibition of 2018. Also Friday (and through the weekend), check out the politically-overt exhibition at SHIM/ArtHelix. And come Monday evening, we have two very interesting literature events: Geoff Cobb reading from his book Sugar King and the all-women publishing collective Mag Mob discussing the future of independent publishing.
You see, there’s a reason why you live in the center of the universe, even if it costs you 60% of your income to rent an apartment here!
See ya there,
Andy P. Smith

With all those damn art fairs in Manhattan this weekend, don’t forget about your local, North Brooklyn galleries and outposts! Here’s a couple receptions and a couple screenings happening around town, starting tonight.
Also, it’s only a week until Bushwick Galleries Late Night.
But first, here’s this weekend’s Art Roundup!
This new series uses handmade Kozo paper with embedded chips of Maine mica, created by neighboring artist Richard Lee. Arlene has molded, stitched, painted and stained the paper to create these spectacular reliefs. The work is personal and haunting. The figures, seemingly delicate and innocent hold dark secrets that is often revealed through hand stitched text.
And this exhibition marks the first in FigurewWorks’ new home, same address, just one flight down. “This work is a perfect compliment to Figureworks new exhibition space – each historically reflecting on the past while recreating a striking new future.”
Japanese Emerging Artists Exhibition, Armory Night Video Screening
Saturday, March 4th
at Williamsburg Art & Historical (WAH) Center
As part of JART7th, an ongoing annual exhibition curated and produced by Hiro Shiraishi of Pepper Project, a Tokyo-based art group, aiming to introduce a new wave of young emerging Japanese artists from Tokyo in collaboration with the New York Japanese artists, as well as artists from Stockholm and Berlin, bridging these metropolises and their respective art worlds and linking these geographically disparate artists together in one show.
This Saturday’s screening features three experimental videos by Mami Kosemura, Jun Ando, Om Meguro Akiyoshi. Artist discussion to follow the screenings.
w/ Musical Performance by Ev
Sponsored by Braven Brewing Company
After party at Artichoke Basille, 8pm ’till.
NYSF is excited to present Alex Chowaniec: Gloria Patria (Burnt Eclipse), a solo pop-up installation, with musical performance by Ev, during Armory Arts Week, in Bushwick.
Chowaniec’s Gloria Patria (Burnt Eclipse) installation is realized through progressive light, as darkness falls at sunset. The image comes to you slowly; in darkness there is discovery.
The democratization of access to art is critical. Chowaniec’s goal is to expand how we achieve this, working in hybrid media (traditional and new) with the conscious goal of creating multiple access points for viewer engagement. Alternative spaces provide a vehicle to change the way we make art, engage with art and reach out to community through flexible sites for exhibition, education and organizing.
Richard P. Rogers (1944–2001) maintained two full-time careers: he was a celebrated director and producer of nonfiction films as well as an inspired teacher of still photography and filmmaking at Harvard. Rogers’s appetite for knowledge was omnivorous, taking him from the jungles of Nicaragua to the fountains of Rome, from the bedrooms of colonial New England homes to the streets of working-class Albany. Throughout these travels, his unsparing artist’s eye turned as often back onto himself—touching on a range of topics from art and architecture to history and literature, his films spoke in many voices, politically engaged but also personal and experimental. Though perhaps best known for the long form independent documentaries Living at Risk and Pictures from a Revolution (both collaborations with Susan Meiselas and Alfred Guzzetti), at Harvard he was also a mentor to new generations of committed filmmakers, and under his directorship the Film Study Center became an important catalyst for nonfiction production.
Presented by Jeremy Rossen, the Assistant Curator at the Harvard Film Archive, this event features four films by Rogers, followed by a conversation with Jeremy Rossen, and Roggers’ collaborators Susan Meiselas, and Alexander Olch.
See you in the streets!
