Bushwick, in a working class district on the north side of Brooklyn adjacent to Williamsburg, has been attracting artists for some time now. The neighborhood has a fair collection of art studios and galleries, but it’s Bushwick’s industrial landscape that’s attracting the street artist. If you came looking for 1960′s Greenwich Village, you’ll find something brewing in Bushwick.

Just in Time is deufert&plischke's most radical approach to audience involvement yet. Over a period of three years, they have been collecting personal memories, experiences, opinions, clichés, and anecdotes in "letters to dance" written by people in Berlin, New York, and Tel Aviv. Participants hand-write a personal letter, address it to dance, and sketch or describe a favorite movement. After each phase of collecting letters and movements in the respective cities, a final ball is organized during which the favorite movements of the inhabitants of each city become the choreographic score for a communal choreography.  New Yorkers' letters to dance were collected in Fall 2017. Now, together with the local dance artists Valda Setterfield, Janet Panetta and Brian Henry, the Just in Time project will be concluded with performed letters to dance, to include piano music by Alain Franco and all of NYC’s favorite movements. The ball will be moderated by Kareth Schaffer to guide you gently through the event. Come and bring family and friends.

With his second exhibition at the gallery, Eric Dyer presents interactive sculptures that dazzle the visitor with their electrifying kinetic energy of animated images. Inspired by pre-cinematic devices to address contemporary themes, Dyer makes animation tangible, inventing new forms beyond the traditional one-dimensional celluloid form. Obsessed with the expressivity of motion, Dyer believes that complex collages of sequential images reveal secret kinetics hidden in stasis related to the everyday world around us.
